The town was founded by Rev. J. Wheelwright after he purchased land there in 1638. He took 175 others with him to start the town.
There were several really lovely shops and there seemed to be many fascinating places to visit, but sadly we just didn't have time to see them all as we were only there for a short period of time.
One afternoon when we came back from somewhere else we went for a drive and I took some photos of some of the lovely houses and other buildings. Some are a little blurry, but you will get the idea of how lovely the town and the houses are.
If you ever happen to be in the area I would recommend it as a place to visit and stay!
Oh, and I should say that not all of the buildings are painted white or cream, but a lot are!!
p.s. Yes, I know, only just posting photos from a year ago! Yikes!
