Our daughter was married here. The grounds were beautiful and the building was terrific. There is also a working farm with a popular green market.

“A great mansion built in 1805”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

If you're near Waltham, MA make it a point to visit Gore Place.Great architecture dating back to the 1800s. Much of the furniture and decor inside the mansion is original. The mansion served as a summer home for Christopher and Rebecca Gore until 1816, when they began to live rhere year round. The architecture of the mansion was influenced by English and French buildings that Rebecca had seen and adnmired during their time in Europe. The grounds are magnificent with very old trees throughout. The 45-minute tour is informative and very interesting.

“Scenic views right in Waltham”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

You won't find another house or estate like this in the greater Boston Area. Walking the grounds takes you back to the 1800's and you feel like you just stepped through a history book.

“A MARK IN TIME”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

The grounds of the Gore Estate are beautiful, and many old traditions were handed down by the Gore's. It is a family place to go and learn about some marked history.

“Moonlight Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

The tour of the house after dark was great fun. They tell you about life before electricity but not too much about the general history of the estate. I guess I will have to go back for that and attend a tour in regular business hours.
