A wealthy Boston couple, Christopher Gore and his wife Rebecca developed their estate in Waltham over several decades. Gore called it “My farm at Waltham.” Though much of the farm is gone today; Gore Place has restored the mansion, carriage house and farmer’s cottage; and kept the original 50 acres of what was a 200-acre farm. Recent projects include growing the flock of Leicester Longwool sheep and building a period barn.
