Site work begins at Eustis Estate
April 12, 2016
Historic New England recently began site work to transform the 1878 William Ellery Channing Eustis Estate in Milton, Massachusetts, into a historic house museum and study center.
We are working to
- restore the house’s decorative interior finishes
- make all public spaces in the museum accessible
- transform the property's garage into a visitor center
- convert the gatehouse (right) into office space
A rare surviving intact example of the early work of renowned Boston architect William Ralph Emerson, the Eustis Estate also includes eighty acres of picturesque landscape adjoining the Blue Hills Reservation.
When the project is completed, the house museum and grounds will be open for tours, special exhibitions, and programs that explore the architecture, interior decoration, and landscape of this iconic Milton estate.
Plans are for the Eustis Estate Museum and Study Center to open to the public in spring 2017.
