The Sarah and Peter Clayes House in Framingham, Massachusetts is one of the most important historic properties in the region.  The SARAH CLAYES HOUSE TRUST is a community group whose mission it is to restore the home — which has been uninhabited for over 20 years and is in severe danger of demolition by neglect — for both private and public use.

Many thanks for your interest in our project!

“Thank you for your tireless efforts to save this precious remnant of our colonial past.

Our nation is currently living through much hardship and anger.

Regardless of our individual political and social viewpoints, we would do well to reflect

on devastating moments in our history, such as the Salem witch trials.

The Sarah Clayes House teaches not only of persecution and intolerance but also of

repentance, forgiveness, and simple permission to live a quiet life.”

                        — Amy Babcock, Donor to the Sarah Clayes Preservation Project
