Driving Directions:

North or South on I-95 (Rte. 128), exit at 19B onto Highland Avenue, Needham. Turn right at the first light [Muzi Ford is on your right]. You will be on Gould Street. Take Gould to the T-intersection and turn left. Follow Gould Street for several miles. There will be one traffic light at Great Plain Ave. You will cross the Charles River into Dover.

In a mile or so 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.
