Red House Museum

Red House Museum is a historic house and museum in Gomersal, West Yorkshire, England.

Red House was built by William Taylor in 1660, and the Taylor family owned it until 1920. The house had a number of famous visitors. One was Charlotte Brontë, who had been a pupil at Roe Head with Mary Taylor, the daughter of Joshua Taylor, a banker and wool merchant. Charlotte Brontë immortalised the family and the house in her novel Shirley.

Red House was also regularly visited by John Wesley and Charles Wesley, the Methodist preachers who were friends of John Taylor, the great-grandson of William Taylor.
