The Forbes House Museum is located just south of Boston in Milton, MA. Architect Isaiah Rogers designed the Greek Revival Style mansion and carriage house in 1833. The Shingle Style barn, added some 40 years later, was designed by Peabody and Stearns. A multi-year project to restore and repurpose the barn began this year.
