*Note regarding Private Events

We are excited to announce that we are in the process of completing a major exterior restoration project through the summer of 2019. Due to the historic nature of the house, we are uncertain of the exact timeline for the project’s completion. As a result we will be unable to accommodate rentals until the fall of 2019. We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to booking future events with you! We will be sure to update this page as more information becomes available.

host your private event with us!

No matter what the special occasion, our historic site provides the perfect setting for your special event. The Shirley-Eustis House's historic Georgian Mansion, rural landscape, and rustic Carriage House creates an intimate setting both indoors and outdoors for your event. 

When Governor William Eustis and his wife Caroline "Madam" Eustis purchased "Shirley Place" in 1819, they hosted lavish parties and formal functions, the most famous being the fête in 1824 for their friend, the Marquis de Lafayette. Follow their tradition by hosting an event at our historic site. Make your event historic!
