Overview

Marshfield’s leading citizen, U.S. Senator Daniel Webster led a campaign to provide food aid to Ireland during the disastrous potato famine in the mid-19th century.

Daniel Webster enjoyed his original house for the final twenty years of his life. It burnt to the ground in 1878. Two years later Webster’s daughter-in-law built the lovely Queen Anne-style house that took its place and still stands. This home is part of The Daniel Webster Estate. Some of this land belongs to The Audobon Foundation. Audobon was a guest at the original house and was a friend of Webster’s.

His seaside farm and homesite are beautifully preserved and open to the public. Membership is available and a variety of functions are offered throughout the year.
