Mansions & Models in Marblehead

Marblehead boasts the largest concentration of pre-revolutionary war structures and the second oldest colonial cemetery on Old Burial Hill

Marblehead also has the Jeremiah Lee Mansion, one of the most important Georgian colonial homes in the US. Built in 1768 it has 18 furnished rooms on three floors.

Another attraction the Captain remembers reading about as a boy is Redds Pond next to the graveyard. This is where organized model yacht racing began in the US in the late 1800's and Kurt was able to catch an EC12 race and sail one of these radio controlled 12 meter scale models.
