Do you wonder what was life like on a big country estate in the early 1800s? Take a Moonlight Tour and find out! You’ll see the 1793 carriage house, walk the grounds and tour the 1806 mansion (one of the few early homes designed by a woman.) Experts call the Gore mansion New England’s finest example of Federal Period architecture.

On the Moonlight Tour, you’ll start in the 1793 Carriage House with it’s restored carriages. You’ll follow the path to the mansion. There, you’ll marvel at the  graceful curve of the Great Stairs, the lovely Oval Withdrawing Room, Gore’s Office and Library, the Peacock Parlor and Great Hall.
