The Martha Hoxie House (ca. 1700) has been the subject of interest for many artists and historians and has been featured in Yankee Magazine and several books. It is a 6 room ''bow roof'' cape that has 3 fireplaces with special detailing. This home is rooted in Cape Cod history, moved twice, first from Old County Road in 1856 to its current parcel, and again in the mid 70's within the same property boundaries, when Quaker Meetinghouse Road was paved; here it has stood for over 40 years. The current owner purchased this charming antique in 1999 and has painstakingly renovated and restored it. The walls were taken down to the studs to insure the home's structural integrity, then properly insulated and re- plastered. Just some of the improvements include updated electrical, installment of a high efficiency heating/cooling system, replacement of the cedar roof and windows, and installment of a new 3 bedroom septic system.
