The 2010 tour season is a special one for Historic New England. It marks our centennial year! For one hundred years, Historic New England has served as the region’s storyteller, opening its doors to share four centuries of New England home and family life. From the 1664 Jackson House, a classic example of early New England architecture and the oldest surviving house in New Hampshire and Maine, to the 1938 Gropius House, home to Walter Gropius, one of the most influential architects of the twentieth century, Historic New England has hundreds of years of history to share with visitors. From Wiscasset, Maine, to Jamestown, Rhode Island, to Stockbridge, Massachusetts, learn about the people who lived in stone-enders, urban mansions, rural estates, and working farms.
As a kind of birthday celebration, Historic New England is opening all of its properties free to the public on June 5. Hours run 1-5 p.m., with tours on the hour (last tours at 4 p.m.).
