Gore Place is a 50-acre country estate in the city, a grand mansion steeped in history, a working farm, and an invaluable community resource. The Gores built their home in 1806. With the help of a Parisian architect, Rebecca planned the Federal-style mansion — a rare opportunity for a woman of the time. The Gores filled the house with locally made furniture and beautiful art, much of which remains in place today. Gore Place is located at 52 Gore St. in Waltham, just nine miles from the heart of Boston. The grounds are open to the public as a community resource. Tours: Monday through Friday on the hour at 10 am, 11 am, 12 pm, 1 pm, and 2 pm Saturdays on the hour at 12, 1, 2, and 3 pm Sundays: Closed

I'd never have expected a site like this in the middle of the suburban Boston area. House of early 1800's landed gentry, a mini Downton Abby/Upstairs Downstairs feel.

Had an excellent guided tour. Unlike some docents we have had, this one was extremely knowledgeable. Nice feature is a notebook in each room giving more detail on each of the furnishings. Very instructive.

Sheep sheering festival is fun as is snowshoeing. If there aren't any activities going it is a little dull.
