Despite COVID, after almost 6 months of repairs and hard work from our team, ‘Sea Captain Foster’s Homestead’ is ready to receive it’s first visitors. If you wish to have a special event or create a memorable event book it soon. All proceeds will be devoted to the restoration of this remarkable Estate.

Brewster Heritage

Currently, we are working on Captain Isaac Foster (1739-1824) who’s son lived at 1222 Stony Brook Rd. in Brewster.

  • Sea Captains are an important part of Brewster’s heritage and history as they left the best built homes and history attached to them.
  • If you have any history to share, please contact us.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • When was the house built? 1799
  • How long did Captain Foster live at this address?
  • Any history about his wife?
  • Any history about his children?
  • Grave sites?
  • Gossips?
