  • The Robinson House

    Historic Robinson Home

    The historic home tour is an intimate experience, during which visitors encounter the stories of all four generations of the Robinsons on their own terms — and in their own spaces. Guided tours of the historic home and outbuildings are available Friday–Monday, with tours at 11 am and 2 pm. Tours last approximately one hour.


Rokeby Museum presents a nationally significant Underground Railroad story tucked inside a quintessential Vermont experience.
A major exhibit — Free & Safe: The Underground Railroad in Vermont — brings the Underground Railroad vividly to life. Focused on Simon and Jesse, two fugitives from slavery who found shelter here in the 1830s, the exhibit traces their stories from slavery to freedom, introduces the abolitionist Robinson family who called Rokeby home, and explores the turbulent decades leading up to the Civil War. The historic house — fully furnished with 200 years of domestic belongings — provides an intimate glimpse into the family’s life through four generations. Once a thriving Merino sheep farm, Rokeby retains nine historic farm buildings filled with agricultural artifacts. Acres of pastoral landscape dotted with old wells, stone walls, and historic orchards invite a leisurely stroll or a hike up the trail. Picnic tables accommodate lunch outdoors.
