Open Houses at the Stevens-Coolidge Place are a chance to step back into the 1920s and experience the country elegance of life on a multi-generation farm turned gentleman's estate.
These guided tours bring visitors through two floors of beautiful architecture, artifacts from around the world and of course the story of Helen and John Coolidge as they transformed Helen’s multi-generation family farm into a gentleman's summer estate fit for the most avid Colonial Revival enthusiasts.
Though we can't bring our guests to our historc house museum this spring, we can bring its history and collections to you! Enjoy a live-streamed virtual tour on Facebook Live.
No registration necessary. Simply head to our Facebook page (link below) at 11am and enjoy. Don't have social media? No problem! We will share the recording on The Trustees YouTube page later in the week.
Follow along with our Historic House Bingo card.

To encourage outdoor play and exploration, this virtual nature-based toddler program will incorporate nature and gardening themes to bring the great outdoors to you at home! Each week will focus on a different part of the garden that will be explored through a story, a small lesson, question and answer session with our instructor, and a step-by-step hands-on craft or activity to do with your toddler at the end of the lesson using household materials. Participants will receive a PDF of printable instructions of how to make each activity after each lesson.
Themes of Backyard Nature Explorers include Seeds, pollinators of the garden, soil, and food that grows in the garden.
We will be using Zoom for this online program. Pre-registration optional.
Your support is greatly appreciated at this time. This program has a suggested ticket price of $5 for participants who are in a position to do so. All interested parties are welcome regardless of donation ability.
