Gore Place is expecting a crowd of 10,000 to come to its 28th Annual Sheep Shearing Festival on April 25th. We will be doing some fun green screening, playfully superimposing people into all kinds of pastoral and bucolic scenes and visitors will be able to post them to their social media! Share the Joy! offers this feature, in addition to our HD video kiosk that records stories, at Mitzvahs, birthday parties, and weddings, too! It adds an element of playfulness to any celebration. Guests can transport themselves anywhere with our one-of-a-kind scenes. We artfully pose you to maximize the whimsy. Guests take away a printed photo of themselves or share it on social media.
Built in 1806, the elegantly furnished mansion at Gore Place is a much sought after location for weddings. It offers the Governor Gore mansion, a lovely carriage house for rustic chic weddings, and 45 acres of pristine grounds surrounded by farmlands. Couples love the versatility of being able to have their ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all in one place, while entertaining their guests in both historic elegance and bucolic beauty. Gore Place is known as the “Monticello of the North” for its Federal period architecture and architectural historians consider it to be the most significant Federal period mansion in New England. It was fashioned after the English and French buildings that Rebecca Gore most admired in her travels and she had a central role in its design.
