Registration is closed - Event is full
Payment In Full In Advance Only
Join BHV member John Mathurin for a private 75-minute group tour of the Shirley-Eustis house.
Whether the criterion is age, beauty, or architectural importance, the Shirley-Eustis House is one of the most venerable mansions in North America. It was built in 1747 by William Shirley, Royal Governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, in the Georgian "villa" style of English country houses of the day. Its gracious interior features a majestic two-story Great Hall. The mansion has undergone many style changes from the original architecture including a "floating staircase."
Meet John and the group at the Ruggles T Stop on the Orange Line promptly at 11:00. At Ruggles, the group will head downstairs to the bus routes and take the #15 bus to Dudley Street. Ruggles is an accessible T stop and has an elevator.
Please bring water and a brown bag lunch.
A mask in required inside the Shirley-Eustis house, which has accessible restrooms available in the Carriage House.
Riders are no longer required to wear a mask while on the T. The MBTA continues to follow CDC guidelines in encouraging people to wear face masks on public transit.
BHV members, their guests, and prospective members: $10/person cover the cost of entry and tour; please pay BHV at registration. Please pay MBTA fares individually. Space is limited.
