Sarah Orne Jewett House

Elise’s Photos of the Jewett House

Elise Tyson married Henry Vaughan in 1916. Emily Tyson died in 1922. Elise kept Hamilton House at the urging of Historic New England founder William Sumner Appleton, eventually leaving it to Historic New England’s care. In 1931, when Teddy left his aunt Sarah Orne Jewett’s house to Historic New England, Elise Tyson Vaughan was helpful to the organization in placement of furnishings to reflect Sarah’s era.
