Thanks For a Great Season!

Happy November! We have closed our doors for daily tours, but we’re busy getting ready for the colder months, winterizing the house and gardens, planning programs for early 2015, and preparing our end-of-year appeal.

Before too much time passes, we want to thank everyone for a wonderful season.

In 2014:

We welcomed over 40,000 visitors.

13 couples said “I do” on the grounds.

We partnered with The Nutrition Center for our first ever children’s camp.

SculptureNow returned with “Common Ground,” an exhibit that saw 25 new sculptures calling The Mount home for six months.

Shakespeare and Company also returned, this time with a riveting production of Romeo and Juliet.

The month of May brought the grand opening of a new kitchen exhibit, along with a new guided tour of the servants’ wing of the house.

We launched a successful new literary series in August where journalist Kate Bolick interviewed four contemporary writers on the high and low points of their careers.

The Mount was named a top ten house tour by Fodor’s.com, a top nine house museum to visit by The Boston Globe, and one of the creepiest literary haunts in the U.S by Fox News.

TripAdvisor recognized House Manager Laurie Foote with a pin of excellence for her wonderful customer service.

After a devastating storm in June left the flower garden severely damaged, The Mount was able to raise $80,000, thanks to our community of members, donors, and supporters. Our team of gardeners, landscapers, and facilities staff quickly repaired the damage and the garden has never looked better!
