The Phillips House

The Phillips House (c. 1767)

Occupied by more than a dozen families over the years, the Phillips House originally stood on High Street in Taunton, Mass.

Built in 1767, the gambrel-roofed house is the oldest building in Storrowton Village and is a beautiful example of early workmanship. Sills and beams of oak were hand-hewn, partitions were reinforced with hand-split laths, nails were hand-forged and each brick in the chimney and fireplaces was moulded by hand.

Built-in cupboards, a spacious kitchen, fireplaces in all the main rooms and interesting woodwork are among the unique features of this home.

The home was moved here in 1930 and completed Helen Storrow’s dream. It sits peacefully next to the Meeting House and houses the Village Gift Shop and administrative offices.
