WISCASSET — Historic New England’s Castle Tucker, 2 Lee St., will be open for tours two extra days next week — Monday, Oct. 13, from noon to 4 p.m. and Tuesday, Oct. 14, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Built in 1807 on a hill overlooking the Sheepscot River, Castle Tucker was home to the upper middle class 19th-century family of Captain Richard Tucker Jr., eldest son of a prominent local shipping family, and his wife Mollie. Tours include stories of the Tuckers’ life in the house, viewing original interior decoration and furnishings preserved by three generations of Tucker family women and how the Tuckers survived economic downturns, wars and family issues while still maintaining their public image in society.

Regular hours are 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Wednesday-Sunday. The final open day of the season will be Wednesday, Oct. 15. Admission costs $8 for adults, $7 for seniors and $4 for children and is free for Historic New England members, Wiscasset residents and active military members.
