The Gibbon House was built in 1730 by wealthy merchant Nicholas Gibbon. This early 18th century structure, the oldest home in Cumberland County, offers visitors the opportunity to experience living arrangements for the county's earliest settlers. The Gibbon House is equipped with two kitchens, a dining room, and a drawing room on the first floor; a large bedroom, a ware chair room, a toy room, a museum room, and a clothing display room on the second floor. It also has two different sets of staircases; one in the hall in the main entrance, and one in the back of the house located in the ware chair room. The Gibbon House's large porch and wood-burning fireplace are indicative of the lifestyle of the 1700s. Call or check website for hours of operation.
