North or South on I-95 (Rte. 128),
exit at 19B onto Highland Avenue, Needham. Proceed straight on Highland Avenue and then bear right at the fork onto Chestnut Street in Needham Center. Follow Chestnut Street for 1.5 miles. You
will cross the Charles River where Chestnut Street becomes Dedham Street.
In about 3 miles you will see the center of Dover ahead. Before
you get there, turn left on Dedham Street. Coming from Needham, it is a hairpin left turn. (If you see
the cemetery on your left or come to the traffic light,
you have gone too far; turn around and
make the first right.)
The Sawin Museum, headquarters
of the Dover Historical Society, is immediately on your
left at the top of a small rise (80 Dedham). Turn up the driveway
and park by the museum.
Continue to follow
Dedham Street for about about 1/2 mile. You will
see the Benjamin Caryl House (107 Dedham) and Fisher Barn sites
on the right.
