Thank You! Your rating has been saved.

The Horatio Colony House Museum is a stately 1806 Federal house that was the home of Horatio Colony II, descendent of one of Keene's prominent industrialist families. The house features original furnishings and decorative arts exactly in place, just as when the family lived here.

The Horatio Colony House Museum is listed on the New Hampshire State Register of Historic Places.

The Horatio Colony Nature Preserve, located on Daniels Hill Road, is comprised of 645 acres of woodlands, streams and upland swamps.

Five miles of hiking trails are open to the public daily from dawn to dusk for nature study and recreation.

The Horatio Colony House Museum is an old-time New England home, filled with original furnishings and fabulous collections from around the world.

A visit to this family home offers a gracious view of a vanishing lifestyle of culture, refinement and travel. The house forms a rich backdrop for family portraits, Oriental rugs, landscape paintings, tall clocks, writing desks replete with elegant writing accouterments and far more to delight the eye.

A beautiful city garden frames the house with perennial borders that provide vintage grace and an array of color throughout the season. Norway maples shade a lawn that gives visitors a place to rest and enjoy.
