Built between 1899 and 1902 for businessman and art collector Frederick Ayer, the Ayer Mansion is the only surviving residence created by American artist and designer Louis Comfort Tiffany. Named a National Historic Landmark in 2005, the Mansion exemplifies what one critic of the day called Tiffany’s “dumbfounding versatility.” Tiffany-designed stone and glass mosaics, graceful metalwork, Favrile glass vases, custom furniture, intricate plaster work, elaborate art glass windows, and unexpected architectural flourishes all work together to create a cohesive masterpiece. To enter the Mansion, you’ll need to climb eight stairs (with a railing). We’ve reserved spots for BHV on this public tour. Possibility of lunch afterwards. Meet at 395 Commonwealth Avenue (between Massachusetts Avenue and Charlesgate East) at 11:50 a.m. for our noon tour. Closest T station is Hynes Convention Center. BHV members and their guests: $10.
