Ventfort Hall Mansion and Gilded Age Museum

104 Walker Street

Ventfort Hall is an imposing Elizabethan-style mansion built in 1893 for Sarah Morgan, the sister of J. P. Morgan. Designed by the architects Rotch & Tilden, it is located in Lenox, Massachusetts. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and declared an official project of “Save America’s Treasures,” a Millennium program of Hillary Rodham Clinton and the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Ventfort Hall is the home of The Museum of the Gilded Age.

Ventfort Hall was one of the approximately seventy-five so-called “Cottages” built in Lenox in the last century when the village became a popular Gilded Age resort. Located on spacious grounds in the heart of the village, it is partially restored and open to the public. Through lectures, exhibits, theatrical performances and other events, The Museum of the Gilded Age interprets the great changes that occurred in American life, industry, and society during the Nineteenth Century, a fascinating period of American history

Incredible recovery story... While there is still much work to do, you can get a good sense of what it must have been like in its heyday. Beautiful woodworking!

Under construction, but a neat place to visit & look at. Pretty sure I experienced an "encounter" between the front room and the library as I smelled a strong floral scent/perfume and there were no flowers or others visible to have left it.
