This year at Home Sweet Home we are celebrating the architects and craftspeople who designed and built our historic properties. From grand mansions to humble colonials to mid-century modern masterpieces, the historic houses of the Trustees all have a story to tell. Come experience all the unique history and rich architecture contained within each home at this FREE event.
Home Sweet Home Makers, Masters & Craftsman will take place Saturday, May 18 from 10AM – 4PM at eight Trustees historic sites which generally charge admission during the open season, and a few of which are only open to the public a few times each year.
From the Berkshires to Greater Boston, there’s a Home Sweet Home open for you.
Home Sweet Home at Castle Hill:
Our home is your home. Enjoy a self-guided tour, walks and talks, a children's eye spy, refreshments, and more. The Castle Hill gift shop and grab-and-go cafe will be open for your shopping needs.
