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.
