Jul 14, 2020

This week, Historic New England begins offering house tours at Beauport, the Sleeper-McCann House, in Gloucester, Mass.; Castle Tucker in Wiscasset, Maine; Hamilton House in South Berwick, Maine; and Roseland Cottage in Woodstock, Conn.

Each tour is limited to just a few guests. All tickets must be purchased online in advance. No tickets will be sold at the sites.

We can’t wait to see you (but please tour safely)

We are excited to welcome you through our doors once again, and we are taking precautions to prioritize the health of our guests and staff. We have revised tour routes and implemented new requirements for the safety of all. In compliance with CDC safety guidelines, we require face coverings and social distancing for all guests and staff. Hand sanitizer is available. Enhanced cleaning and disinfectant measures are in place.

Thank you to all our guests who toured the Eustis Estate and Gropius House this past weekend. It was nice to welcome you back. Thanks also to all our landscape visitors for helping us to maintain a safe environment as we make the grounds at many sites available for those who just want enjoy being outside in a lovely location.
