Built in the mid-1800s, this Greek Revival house (pictured above) was built by Augustus C. Shelton, a partner in the Shelton and Tuttle carriage shop. The house was a gift to his niece, along with 100 acres of surrounding farmland. The property was later known as the Burr Farm. In more recent years the property belonged to the Alley family.
Today the Alley House museum houses a collection of Plymouth memorabilia and is the office of the Plymouth Historical Society.
It is located at 572 Main Street. It is open by appointment (call 860-584-4634) and on the last Saturday of each month at 1 pm when we have monthly meetings scheduled. Stop in!
