Historic Houses

From the Colonial Era to the Modern Movement, our historic homes represent architecture, design, and history that spans more than 300 years. When you visit these destinations—which include a Gilded Age country estate, a Stuart-style mansion, and a Federal-style home in the midst of a breathtaking garden—you can expect something more than a plain old house tour.

The homes mesh historic context and aesthetic beauty, emphasizing seldom-heard stories and unlikely historical connections. With a series of creative exhibitions and fresh visitor experiences, these dwellings  animate history, provoke conversation, and stimulate new thinking while reinterpreting our cultural past.
