Thomas S. Greenman House
This house was built in 1842 for Thomas and Charlotte Greenman. Thomas was the youngest of the three brothers who founded the George Greenman & Co. Shipyard. The oldest brother, George, built the house two doors to your left in 1839. The middle brother, Clark, built the house on your left in 1841. All three houses were built in the Greek Revival style then popular in the U.S. The cast-iron fence was put up about 1866, and the porches and ornate decorations were added to the houses in the 1870s.
Mystic Seaport is located on the site of the Greenman shipyard and textile mill. The Thomas Greenman House is furnished and open to Museum visitors as an exhibit. If you would like to find out more about Mystic Seaport, please stop by our Visitor Reception Center opposite the first traffic light to your left.
