Description

*April 11, 2014 at 7:30pm: A Full Moon Tour About What the Butler Said *

Imagine what it would be like to live in a house full of servants! The Gores did. Those servants included Robert Roberts, author of House Servant’s Directory. Much of the information for this tour came straight out of Roberts’ book. This tour offers views of this beautiful 1806 mansion. See why it has been called, “the Monticello of the North.”

May 2, 2014 at 7:30pm:* An Evening Tour of the Gore Mansion*

Enjoy a guided, evening tour of the mansion, including views of the Great Stairs, Great Hall, Withdrawing Room, Breakfast Room, Billiard Room, Gentlemen’s Sitting Room, Servant and Family Chambers. See what this beautiful house looks like at night and discover why many have called it, “the Monticello of the North.”
