The following information came from Gore Place:
Gore Place is offering a new audio tour of the 50-acre estate in Waltham and Watertown. The tour entitled, My Farm at Waltham will be available, year-round, free of charge. Accessed by phone, the audio tour describes the information on interpretive panels which can be found on six key points of the property.
The panels tell the story of Christopher and Rebecca Gore’s 250-acre farm, the people who worked the land, and the animals they raised. The audio tour and interpretive panels are available dawn to dusk, year-round, except during special events. Check the museum’s website for availability.
The audio tour was funded, in part, by a grant from the Watertown Cultural Council and Waltham Cultural Council, which receive support from the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
