More About Gore Place Society
Built in 1806, Gore Place was the home to Massachusetts governor Christopher Gore and his wife Rebecca. Called by some "the Monticello of the North," this 48-acre estate includes a beautiful mansion, along with a barn and sprawling, open fields. While it was the governor's home, it also held a small farm that raised sheep, goats and poultry. It is owned and operated by the non-profit Gore Place society. Society membership includes free admission to Gore Place, a newsletter, invitations to special events and more. The Mansion is open only for guided tours for a small admission charge. You may visit the grounds of the estate from dawn to dusk at no charge (except during special events). Plenty of free parking is available. Special events, including the annual Gore Place Sheep Shearing Festival, are held throughout the year. The mansion and the entire estate can be rented for private functions. Please see the Web site for more information.
