About Highfield Hall & Gardens
It is a magnificent Victorian mansion with beautiful gardens located in the heart of Falmouth, Massachusetts.
It is a unique combination of a historic home, expansive gardens and trails, and a vibrant cultural center. Built
in 1878 as the summer home for Boston’s Beebe family, the mansion sits on 5.5 pristine acres surrounded by
nearly 400 acres of conservation land and public walking trails. Highfield Hall & Gardens is not your typical
historic estate. It is an example of a historic building saved by grassroots community organizing. An effort of
tenacity and vision that continues as new research on the structure and its story of the people who lived here
add to the building’s significance. It offers world-class music, international art exhibitions, culinary classes,
family programs, and year-round special events. For more information, visit highfieldhallandgardens.org.

Mission
Highfield Hall & Gardens’ mission is to honor the beauty and historic significance of the house and grounds by
providing high-quality artistic, cultural, and educational programs for the enrichment of our community and
visitors of all ages.
