Guided Walking Tour, 27 February | Event in Waltham | AllEvents.in Guided Walking Tour
Take a guided tour of the historic grounds at Gore Place entitled "My Farm at Waltham." Walk the grounds of the estate and learn the history of Gore Place as a country seat and working farm of the early 1800s. The tour lasts 45 minutes.

A wealthy Boston couple, Christopher Gore and his wife Rebecca developed their estate in Waltham over several decades. Gore called it “My Farm at Waltham.” Gore was a founding member of the Massachusetts Society for Promoting Agriculture (est. 1792) and was innovative in his methods of farming. This tour uses Gore’s letters and the journal of his farm manager, Jacob Farwell, among other sources, to tell the story of farming on the estate in the early 1800s. Though much of the original 19th century farm is gone today, Gore Place has restored the Mansion, Carriage House and Farmer’s Cottage, and kept the original 50 acres of what was a 250-acre farm.

Tours will meet outside the Carriage House door next to the parking lot.

Tour schedule:
Every Saturday at 11am or by appointment.
