Gore Plase: The Historic Govenor Gore Estate

Over the weekend I visited this estate and walked the grounds and farm.  It looked quite interesting.  I had to leave before they had the lecture on how people used to keep warm in the olden days.

IMG_5310Gore Place, the Federal period, historic house and estate of Massachusetts Governor Christopher Gore, includes a small farm with sheep, goats and poultry. The elegantly furnished mansion has been called “The Monticello of the North” and architectural historians consider it to be the most significant Federal Period mansion in New England.

I hope to return when it’s greener and the farm stand is open.  There seems to be a lot going on with new restoration projects, the farm, and tours.
