The Trustees’ public gardens are a living documentary of Massachusetts horticulture and design traditions, and the organization is celebrating those gardens, many of which are part of the landscapes of their historic homes, at what they've dubbed Home Sweet Home Day. The public can experience all the beauty, history, and unique stories contained within each home, as well as the exquisitely designed gardens and stunning natural landscapes that continue to inspire creative minds to this day. Whether you're a garden lover, an architecture aficionado, a plein air painter, or simply curious, there is a house for you to explore.

Home Sweet Home will take place Saturday, May 19 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. at ten Trustees historic sites which generally charge admission during the open season, and a few of which are only open to the public a few times each year. From the Berkshires to Greater Boston, there’s a Home Sweet Home open for you.

The ten sites open for free during this upcoming “Home Sweet Home” includeFruitlands Museumin Harvard (the Trustees newest historic site),Castle Hill on the Crane Estatein Ipswich, theEleanor Cabot Bradley Estatein Canton, theStevens-Coolidge Placein North Andover,The Old Mansein Concord,The Ashley Housein Sheffield,Naumkeag House & Gardensin Stockbridge, theMission Housein Stockbridge,The Follyat Field Farm in Williamstown and theWilliam Cullen Bryant Homesteadin Cummington.
