Invisible from the street, Stonehurst sits on a secluded hilltop site amidst 109 acres of public conservation land – away from it all, and yet so close to home.

Visit Stonehurst often throughout the seasons. Explore the breathtaking interiors with permanent exhibits, climb Glacier Rock, enjoy the rolling Olmsted-designed acres, or hike on a branch of the new Western Greenway Trail. Each time you will see it in a new light.

Explore this innovative country house of wealthy social reformer Robert Treat Paine, his family and their servants on your own, and at your own pace and course. Narrative panels found throughout the house convey its unique story in the search for American identity while preserving its harmonious design, flow of space and serenity of place.
