Not quite 300 years old. Needs a lot of attention has not been very will maintained. Very interesting historical tour of the Salisbury family. The docent Bob provided a well balanced explanation of the mansion what was original and what was modified.

The Salisbury mansion is beautiful and takes a great picture. It is partly hidden in the back of a municipal parking lot rather than immediately facing the street.

Beautiful home and interesting historical stories about the Salisbury family run store. See furnishings and period collectibles on site. Imagine yourself among the Worecster elite during the 1800s.

My sister and I went to a tea party here and it was fun, they showed us around the house and told of the history, what a unique place in the middle of the city. The tea was nice too

Our visit began with a knock on the door, as it was locked and there is only one person staffing this mansion. We received a personalized tour, though we were ultimately joined by two more history buffs toward the end of the tour. This meant...More

This is one beautiful historical home. It's absolutely gorgeous. If kept it up so nicely it's really worth a stop just to see it from the outside let alone to try to see the inside too.

Yes, but it is very small. I believe it is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors and students, free for 18 and under.
