The Lyman Estate Tour (Family)
Family Classes -
Explore a historic home that is over 200 years old through the lens of generations of the Lyman family on this interactive tour. Built just ten years after the end of the Revolutionary War, explore the incredible architecture and hear stories about what it was like to live in a house like this in the 1800s and 1900s. Initially used as a 24-room summer home, learn about the many expansions and remodels the house has gone through, including the construction of one of the oldest greenhouses in the U.S. See how the architectural elements were chosen to reflect the most stylish designs of the time, including a graceful oval parlor and elegant ballroom that were featured in the 2019 film adaptation of Little Women. History buffs, art lovers, and young explorers alike will enjoy wandering through the mansion and (weather-permitting) the surrounding grounds. Ages 8+ Please note: Meeting location and safety guidelines will be emailed as part of the Registration Confirmation email. Fee is for one adult and one child. Please register under adult’s name.
Tour will be led by Michael H Maler, the Historic New England Regional Site Administrator, Metro-Boston.
