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.
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.
