Celebrate this wonderful time of the year with us. There are holiday events, house tours, gift ideas, and landscapes to explore.

Enjoy a Victorian Christmas

Visit the Eustis Estate in Milton, Mass., from December 1 through December 31, and experience the mansion decorated as it would have been in 1878, complete with a twelve-foot Christmas tree, garlands, and other festive decorations.

Attend a holiday event

Other Historic New England sites are decorated for special events and programs. Visit our events page for information on holiday markets, workshops, musical performances, tours, visits with Santa, festive teas, and more.

Find the perfect gift

Plants make wonderful gifts. The Lyman Estate Greenhouses in Waltham, Mass., are open and selling plants. Shop Tuesdays through Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Historic New England members get 10% off all greenhouse purchases.

Give the gift of membership

Give your friends and family a holiday gift that will last all year long. A Historic New England gift membership will inspire new discoveries through December 2023! With thirty-eight historic sites and hundreds of events throughout the year, there are so many opportunities to create lasting memories. Your gift includes a set of notecards showcasing the beauty of New England’s seasons.
