‪This is the longest continually lived in house by the same family in the USA – since 1640! The original builder, Stephen Wing, was a brother of one of my ancestors, Daniel Wing, and is the home of the Wing Family of America, Inc. This is a visit I’ve been looking forward to for 20 years as my great-grandmother was a Wing. It was very interesting to tour the house and see some Wing family artifacts. However, I was disappointed with the tour. First, our guide spent most of his time chatting with the other person who came to tour the house. We never really had the chance to ask questions. Also, I would have loved to hear a lot more about Stephen Wing, his brothers (who are represented in the Wing Family of America) and his son, grandson, etc. who lived in the house. There were also portraits on the wall – who were they and how did they fit into Stephen’s family? Since none of the artifacts is original to the house, who donated them and what is their significance?‬

‪The docent Dave Wheelock was very interesting and knowledgeable about this house. He took you through the different eras of the house and the many changes it went through. He gave you insights of the house which made it more like you lived the times. He answered any question asked and was very patient. Loved the tour!. ‬

‪The Wing Fort House, which was built in 1641, is recognized as the oldest home in New England continuously owned by the same family. Stephen Wing either purchased the homestead from the town of Sandwich or the town granted him the property around the time of his first marriage in 1646. Wing's descendants continued to live in the house until 1942. The house was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. Tradition states that the home was at one time a fort to protect the earliest settlers from the Native Americans. The exterior of the "Old Fort" Room, the oldest part of the current structure, is composed of a double wall. Interestingly, since the Cape Cod Indians were found to be friendly, the town didn't need a fort for protection. Today, the Fort House is a museum. It is located at 69 Spring Hill Road, off of Route 6A, in East Sandwich, Massachusetts. Stephen Wing also was an active member of the Quakers and conducted the first "Friends' Meeting" at the adjacent Spring HIll Meeting House in 1658. In truth, the Wing Fort House has been altered so often over the years that little of the original structure remains. For example, the fort itself now constitutes the parlor of Wing's home, a room 15 feet by 12 feet in dimension. Old oaken rafters overhead indicate the size of the original building. A great fireplace occupies one end of the room, leading to an immense chimney. A narrow stairway leads to the second floor. The house is nestled at the foot of a hill across the old road leading to the Spring Hill Meeting House, a half-mile away. At the rear of the house are salt marshes stretching to the waters of Cape Cod Bay. The beach is only a five-minute walk away.‬

‪The docent gave me a very thorough one on one tour. While he didn't swear that there is or are spirit(s) there, we had an interesting discussion of the possibility that there is one lurking about. Second only to the nearby Hoxie house, as far as I can tell.‬

‪A special treat to have a tour guide that is not only an archeologist, but also a history buff. Allow enough time to not only to enjoy the tour of the house , but also to allow time to learn about the family and life on the cape‬

‪As seems the case with many of Cape Cod's attractions, the Wing Fort House was not open when we visited just a few days prior to Memorial Day weekend. We would have enjoyed seeing the inside but all we could do was to look into the windows.‬

Dear Maui2014NMR, I'm so sorry we missed your early spring visit to the Wing Ft House. A couple tips for your next visit: The House is open to the public 10-4 Tuesday through Saturday, mid-June thru mid-Sept. You'll find our hours posted on the website (wingfamily.org). Also, one of the benefits for registered Members of the Wing Family of America Inc. is to be able to reserve off-season tours as long as the Caretaker/Guide is available and has sufficient advance notice! Thank you for taking the time to contact us, and do come again.

‪If you plan on visiting Sandwich or the region you MUST visit this fascinating and venerable old homestead. If you don't, you'll be missing one of the most interesting houses for miles around and for a very reasonable entrance fee. So please, please put it on top of your list of things to do and see in Cape Cod. Believe me, you will not regret it!

Si vous planifiez un voyage à Sandwich ou la région ne manquez PAS de visiter cette vénérable et fascinante vieille demeure. Si vous ne le faites pas, vous manquerez une des plus belles attractions à la ronde et cela pour un prix d'entrée très raisonable. Je vous suggère fortement d'ajouter cette visite en haut de votre liste de choses à faire et à voir à Cape Cod. Croyez-moi, vous ne le regretterez pas!‬

‪I am a Wing descendant, thus thrilled to finally get inside this interesting historic home of my earliest Wing ancestor in New England. Even though the earliest habitation here dated from 1641 and was basically earthworks, a small house was erected, then redesigned and actually built around, so as not to weaken the structure. This was done several times to achieve the large house which now stands, from the mid-1700's. The floor plan is unusual as a result, and one feels a hint of the farm atmosphere of the time, since the house was never wired or fitted with indoor plumbing. The resident guide/archaeologist is knowledgable and also knows the Wing Family history if asked. Warning: on a hot day, go in the morning, as the guide often closes the doors at noon due to heat and lack of ventilation. And don't come after 3:30 - even though the hours supposedly extend to 4 p.m. He will not begin a new tour that late. For an authentic glimpse of early America, Indian wars and all, come at least an hour before closing.‬

‪It was fascinating to see our ancestors' home. We appreciated David, caretaker and archaeologist, and his knowledge as tour guide. He said it was estimated with 12 generations of Wing's that we number over 60,000 of us now! Though I married into the family, my children and grandchildren have this wonderful legacy. I especially loved the cross-stitch of nine-year-old Grace Wing (same age as my grandson, Greyson) and her sweet poetry. We also saw a photo on the wall that looked amazingly like Greyson's grandfather. I encourage everyone to take an hour or two to visit this wonderful historic home.‬
