Ipswich Visitor Center

The Ipswich Visitor Center

The Ipswich Visitor Center, located in the 1820 Hall-Haskell House sits at the heart of our town on the Center Green, in one of several national historic districts in town.

The Hall Haskell House operates spring through fall as an art gallery and welcome center, providing an abundance of maps and brochures, and a self-guided audio tour. The Ipswich Visitor Center is staffed entirely by friendly and well-informed volunteers.

Volunteering at the Ipswich Visitor’s Center is one of the most rewarding things I do. The people who come in are so grateful for the information and insight that we give them. We who travel know how valuable little tips and recommendations can be. I have met people from all over the world [not in the last year] but helping visitors  from nearby is fun too.  And, if your shift isn’t busy, you get to enjoy reading a book!”  –Sheila Bodwell
