The 1707 Faulkner Homestead, 5 High Street, is the oldest building in Acton, and the oldest house in the Acton area to be preserved for the public in its original state.
Jones Tavern, 128 Main Street, was built in 1732 with additions in 1750 and ca. 1818. It was the home of the Jones family, who ran a tavern, store, and a dairy farm. Remnants of the tavern are still intact, and items from the 19th- and 20th-century Jones farm are on display.
There is no admission charge, but donations are welcome. Parking is available on site or nearby.
Check back for more info on Jone's Tavern fire commemoration, coming up in July.
