Welcome to the Loring Greenough House
The last surviving 18th century residence in Sumner Hill, a historic section of Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, the Loring Greenough House is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is designated both a Massachusetts Landmark and a Boston Landmark.
House tours are available on Sundays. Come and learn about the rich history of this well-preserved mid-Georgian mansion. The house is set back from busy South Street, surrounded by stately trees, a rolling lawn, and treasured gardens.
Scheduled tours of the Loring Greenough House are offered to the public by volunteer docents, who guide visitors through the historic house on Sundays from 1pm to 3pm, from April 1st through November 18th. There is a suggested donation of $5. Tours may be scheduled at other times by contacting us at: firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the house directly at (617) 524-3158. (If a major holiday or extreme weather fall on a Sunday, please get in touch to confirm our docents will be available.)
Visitors are welcome to picnic and play on the lawn during daylight hours.
The house and grounds are available for event rentals. Meetings, community gatherings and weddings can take place inside the house among period furnishings or outside on the lawn.
