Visiting Properties

All Trustees properties are now open to the public. Visitors are encouraged to reserve advance online passes to our admissions properties, including deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum in Lincoln, Castle Hill in Ipswich, Fruitlands Museum in Harvard, World’s End  in Hingham, Stevens-Coolidge House & Gardens in North Andover, and Naumkeag in Stockbridge.  Onsite admissions sales may be possible if capacity allows.  Advance ticket purchase of admission is required at World’s End in Hingham on weekends, and at Crane Beach in Ipswich, all days.   

Protocols for Outdoor Spaces

Face masks are not currently required at Trustees properties, when outdoors and able to socially distance.   

Public bathrooms have been reopened, if they were previously closed, and we will follow all cleaning and other safety guidelines established by the CDC. 

Crane Beach in Ipswich is also open with advance online parking passes, which at this time are required. Permit holders can access Crane Beach for free with their permit and an advance online pass. Members can reserve discounted advance passes according to the pass release schedule.

Protocols for Indoor Spaces

As of Monday, August 30 The Trustees will be requiring staff and visitors in our indoor spaces, where we welcome the public, to wear a mask regardless of vaccination status.  In light of rapidly changing guidance from the state and CDC, we believe this is the most effective way to provide the safest possible environment for our staff and guests at this time.  

Please check back for regularly for new Covid-related announcements.

Programs and Events

During this time of COVID, The Trustees has been conservative with our engagement efforts because ensuring the safety of our staff and visitors is our top priority. We strongly encourage participants to wear face masks, if vaccinated, and require it for all who are not vaccinated, while indoors. Please check back regularly for any updates to our COVID-related policies. 

Advance online ticket sales will continue for programs and events. 

Farm Stores and CSA Shares

All Trustees farms are now open to visitors. Farm stores will be open to the public on June 8th. Learn more about our farm stores here. 

For CSA shareholders, The Trustees will be offering pre-packaged boxed shares this season. Learn more about our CSAs. 

Inns and Campgrounds

While face masks are optional outdoors at our inns and campgrounds, we strongly encourage vaccinated guests, and require unvaccinated guests, to wear face masks in indoor public spaces or when not able to socially distance. We trust our guests will do what is right for the health and wellbeing of other guests and our staff.
