Designed by the architectural firm of J. Williams Beal & Sons of Boston, the house not only exhibits skilled hand craftsmanship in every aspect of its interior and exterior, but also features a number of technological innovations of the early 20th century. Groups will enjoy a self-guided tour of the Estate, visit the Gift Shop, Carriage House and Art Gallery. An Artisan Fair featuring local, handmade wares will take place in the Carriage House where guests can get a jump start on their holiday shopping.
