Unfortunately, during COVID-19, tours are not taking place. When we are able to welcome you back, tours will be held on the following basis:
Scheduled tours of the Loring Greenough House are offered to the public by volunteer docents, who guide visitors through the historic house on Sundays in late April through late November with tours beginning at 1 pm, 2 pm, and 3 pm. Suggested donation is $5. Tours may be scheduled at other times by emailing us or by calling the house 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.)
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.
Visitors are welcome to picnic and relax on the lawn during daylight hours.
The house and grounds are available for event rentals. Meetings, community gatherings, parties, and weddings can take place inside the house among period furnishings or outside on the lawn. Please visit the Rentals page for more information.
