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 fĂȘte in 1824 for their friend, the Marquis de Lafayette. Follow their tradition by hosting an event at our historic site. Make your event historic!
