See Gore Place, the historic Governor Gore estate in Waltham, by evening's light. A guide will lead you through the mansion for views of the Great Stairs, the Great Hall, the Withdrawing Room, the Office, the Library, the Parlor, the Breakfast Room, the second-floor Chambers and the Billiard Room as well as the Servant's Quarters. Participants will see a whole-house exhibit of late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century folk art. With its spiral staircase, marble floors, and oval rooms, the elegantly furnished mansion has been called "the Monticello of the North" and architectural historians consider it to be the most significant Federal period mansion in New England.

Reviews & Ratings
Waltham native and independent scholar Rob Velella has made it his stated goal to “...do nothing less than bring 19th-century writers back from the dead.” Using first-person, in-character interpretation, Rob portrays the young Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Nathaniel Hawthorne and, of course, Edgar A. Poe.
With its lofty ceiling, marble floors and beautiful decor, the Great Hall of the 1806 Gore mansion will provide the perfect setting for these spooky tales. What better way to spend a winter's eve?
This event is recommended for those ages 16 and older.
