NOTE: the grounds will now be open to the public Monday through Friday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. We are also planning to resume opening the house in the fall for timed guided tours which will limit the number of participants and observe the Governor’s guidelines for social distancing and sanitizing. In order to monitor the volume of visitors at one time, this will be a pre-ticketed event. You can purchase tickets at Eventbrite.com
Our ever-popular ghost tours and paranormal investigations are also resuming. For information about these events you can visit OliverHouseMA on Facebook or email Oliverhousechirsty@gmail.com. Tickets for these events will be available on Eventbrite.com
Originally incorporating two dwelling houses laid out in a landscaped park, the estate was described by Governor Hutchinson as “one of the loveliest spots in all his majesty’s colony”
Today visitors can experience the elegant Georgian mansion and its extensive formal gardens which were home to Dr. Peter Oliver and his wife Sally Hutchinson who often entertained figures such as Benjamin Franklin and John Adams. The house is painstakingly restored and maintained by a dedicated team of volunteers.
Visitors can stroll in the gardens Monday through Friday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Tickets for all events including house tours, teas and ghost tours are available on Eventbrite.com.
