  • A historic and neat museum of sorts. The main house at Gore Place is able to be experienced via a guided tour. Many interesting rooms, great architecture and a huge area of land to meander about on. The tour is quick (under 1 hours) so while it is not a full day trip, it is worthy of seeing. The location is easily accessible via an MBTA bus route that drops you off about a 5 minute walk from the house.
  • Very enjoyable little historical site. The staff is knowledgeable and interested. I enjoy the many festivals they hold all year.
  • Nice historic resource. The mansion is near to learn about. Some innovative architectural features for the period, and pretty grounds
  • Absolutely beautiful building and grounds, small parking lot and open to the public for most of the day.
  • Very nice place to host an event. Lots of open space and fields are well kept.
