January 27: Ayer Mansion Tour and Wine and Cheese Reception

Updated November 11: Nearly half the spots have been taken.


A private tour of Boston’s Ayer Mansion with the preservation expert leading their current effort, and a wine and cheese reception.

Here’s how the organization describes the mansion:

“[A] rare surviving example of the residential work of designer Louis Comfort Tiffany. . . . The Ayer Mansion is one of only three surviving  Tiffany residential commissions, which include the interiors of the Samuel L. Clemens (Mark Twain) House in Hartford, Connecticut (1881) and the Pierre Ferry House in Seattle, Washington (1903-1906), both of which are actually redesigns by Tiffany.  The Ayer Mansion stands alone as the sole example of a house designed from its inception by the artist. The Ayer Mansion is also unusual in Tiffany’s work in that it contains exterior as well as interior  mosaics.”
