About Gore Place

Gore Place is one of the finest country estates that remain from the Federal era, with 45 acres of landscaped grounds, farmlands and gardens. The home of Massachusetts Governor Christopher Gore (1758-1827) and his wife, Rebecca (1759-1834), was in their time an oasis of refined living in the country. It is still an oasis today in suburban Greater Boston. Although conveniently located nine miles outside of Boston, the grounds continue as a pastoral, peaceful setting for any event.

Tented and Outdoor Events

The estate's 45 acres of gardens and lawns provides a beautiful setting for your tented reception, from the smallest to the largest of gatherings. The spacious green lawns allow flexibility in arrangements, so that each function can to be sited in a special place. Surrounded by large evergreens and magnificent hardwoods, the beautifully maintained grounds are an attractive setting for all manner of gatherings. Gore Place maintains an elegant three season tent on the grounds available from May to November.

Rental of the Tent also includes access and use of the Carriage House.

The Carriage House

The rustic 1793 Carriage House is one of the few remaining structures of this type remaining intact in New England. The building offers an informal setting for small gatherings, holding up to 100 guests. Completely handicap accessible, the Carriage House features two restrooms (one is handicap accessible), two electric stoves/ovens, sink and refrigerator. The interior has cream colored plaster walls with grey wooden wainscoting and dark brown barn-board floors. The Carriage House is also open for those who hold receptions or events in our Tent facility.
Gore Place has received approximately 109 profile views in the last three months.
