Built in 1736 for the Reverenderenderend Josiah Dennis, for whom the town is named, this salt box house was purchased by the town in 1967. It has been fully restored. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. Within its rooms is a "Mayflower" chest and a remarkable collection of furnishings and other historic artifacts showcasing lifestyles of the 18th and 19th centuries. Like Jericho, this house is open frequently to summer visitors. Fenced herb and vegetable gardens provide seasonal fare for the household. A maritime room with a diorama of the Shiverick shipyard has various items associated with the days of clipper ships.
