Gore Place is at 52 Gore St., on SR 20 at the Waltham-Watertown line. Built in the early 1800s for Gov. Christopher Gore, the mansion is one of the finest examples of Federal domestic architecture in New England. Set in a 40-acre park, the house has been called the “Monticello of the North” and features 22 rooms furnished in period, plus a renovated 1793 carriage house. A small farm with sheep, goats and poultry is on-site.
