Join us as the Rye Public Library and Rye Historical Society cooperatively present a power point talk about Rye’s historic homes and specifically the moving of the historic Marston House from Hampton to Rye in 1975. This presentation will be given by Rye historian Alex Herlihy.
While many other historical homes will be considered, the majority of the presentation will concern the Marston house. Originally built in 1654 , it was expanded in the early1700’s and 1840. The history of this home represents three centuries of Marstons, one of the founding families of Hampton which used to include the southern part of Rye.
