Restoration in Progress

Our beautiful Georgian Mansion is currently getting a facelift. Thanks to the generous contributions of our members and donors, we are able to restore and repaint the exterior clapboards and shutters of our 18th century mansion. Unfortunately, the rainy fall weather brought major delays so we will be continuing the restoration in Spring 2019.

Donate to help preserve our historic structures!

Dig at SEH!

City Archaeologist Joe Bagley and the City of Boston Archaeology Program recently completed an archaeological dig at the Shirley-Eustis House! They are hoping to find the original foundation of the Mansion, particularly the location of the winter kitchen, and also privies. The dig started on October 1st and lasted for roughly three weeks. Check out the City of Boston Archaeology Program’s social media @bostonarchaeo for live updates and results.

We look forward to continuing to work with them next spring and hear about their results!
