SPECIAL EVENTS

Are you interested in having cocktails, dinner, and some fantastic conversation on the grounds of a historic estate? Does a reenacted colonial ball, town hall debate, or twilight tour of a centuries-old house tickle your fancy? If so, you’ve come to the right place! During the May- October season, the 1699 Winslow House will play host to many of these Special Events, averaging at least one per month.

See below for details on some of these great programs.

Proceeds will help to fund the preservation and operations of the 1699 Isaac Winslow House.
