Captain John Grannis House

Aw, man, we miss Cape Cod. This photo of the 1765-built Captain John Grannis House was taken last summer using #snickersonastick.

Captain Grannis was an ardent patriot. In the Revolutionary War, he commanded the expedition to protect the stock on the Elizabeth Islands from the British fleet. In the War of 1812, he was active in the defense of the town as it was shelled by the British ship, Nimrod.

Later owners of the home included Captain Weston Jenkins and Thomas Lewis, who was the Town Clerk and Treasurer for 28 years.
