The Trustees’ public gardens are a living documentary of Massachusetts horticulture and design traditions. We are celebrating those gardens, many of which are part of the landscapes of our historic homes, at Home Sweet Home—our annual Open House Day—this year. Come experience all the beauty, history, and unique stories contained within each home, as well as the exquisitely designed gardens and stunning natural landscapes that continue to inspire creative minds to this day. Whether you're a garden lover, an architecture aficionado, a plein air painter, or simply curious, we have a house for you to explore.
Home Sweet Home will take place Saturday, May 19 from 10AM – 4PM at ten Trustees historic sites which generally charge admission during the open season, and a few of which are only open to the public a few times each year. From the Berkshires to Greater Boston, there’s a Home Sweet Home open for you.
