Built by shipwrights in 1834 for whaling merchant William Rotch Jr., the Rotch-Jones-Duff (RJD) House and Garden Museum epitomizes the “brave houses and flowery gardens” described by Herman Melville in Moby-Dick. Greek Revival in style, it was designed by architect Richard Upjohn, a founder and first president of the American Institute or Architects.
Today this National Historic Landmark offers house tours, a variety of cultural programs and changing exhibits, and curriculum-based educational programming to more than 2,000 students annually.
We invite you to visit 396 County Street and step back in time to experience the history of a community closely tied to the sea.
