The Historic Waterhouse Residence Museum located in Maitland, just off Hwy 17-92, overlooking Lake Lily. The fully restored Victorian home was originally built in 1884 by William H. Waterhouse for his family. The home demonstrates what life was like for a middle class family over 100 years ago. Through its furnishings, mementos and clothing, this two story home exhibits the class and customs of the people of the day. Admission is $3 for adults and $2 for children. Children under the age of 5 are free.

Next to the home you will find the Waterhouse Carpentry Shop Museum which displays tools used by craftsmen of the late 19th century. Constructed around 1883, this is where Mr. Waterhouse ran his woodworking and construction business. Tour guides will demonstrate the use of select tools and tell visitors about woodworking and carpentry practices of the late 1800s.

The museums and grounds offer a variety of special uses, including event rentals, birthday parties and educational programs.
