Tour of Shirley-Eustis House

Join a free tour of the Shirley-Eustis House, a National Historic Landmark built between 1747 and 1751.

As one of only several remaining Royal Colonial Governor's residences in the United States, the Georgian-style structure is an architectural and historical treasure, spanning the development of our nation, our commonwealth, and local communities from the mid-18th century to the present.

In 1991, Shirley Place was awarded the prestigious Boston Preservation Alliance Award for best restored small-scale structure in the City of Boston. This former summer estate of William Shirley, Royal Governor of Massachusetts Bay Colony and Commander-in-Chief of all British forces in North America, was re-modeled by Federalist-era Massachusetts Governor William Eustis. The mansion has hosted a who's who of Colonial and Federalist America. Shirley Place and its grounds are a hidden gem located in Roxbury's Dudley neighborhood.

Tours are offered on the hour. The mansion is only accessible by stairs.
