Rotch-Jones-Duff House and Garden Museum

Located within walking distance of the Whaling Museum and the historic downtown district, this Greek Revival mansion (1834, Richard Upjohn) and its sylvan grounds typify the "brave houses and flowery gardens" of New Bedford that Herman Melville immortalized in Moby Dick. Sumptuous period rooms and historical exhibits chronicle 150 years of the economic and social evolution of the city as it was experienced by the New Bedford whaling elite.
