Durant-Kenrick House and Grounds has been featured in a new book:
Be There Then: A Guide to Exploring Greater Boston's Historic House Museums features colorful profiles of more than forty historic houses open to the public in and around Boston. It’s an indispensable handbook to help readers discover hidden historical gems as well as some better-known portals to the past. For each house museum, Be There Then provides key facts that visitors need to know, a description capturing the overall visitor experience, and photos – all designed to help you prioritize and plan visits to your liking.
From colonial to Victorian, from modest to upper-crust, there are houses for every interest. Fascinated by New England history, architecture, or art? Curious about how people lived and worked, or major events that took place? This book will point you to a diverse range of remarkable historic house museums that tell all of these stories.
The author makes note of the terrific activities for children and especially recommends Durant-Kenrick for families in particular.
This book will be for sale at the Durant-Kenrick reception desk where a portion of the proceeds from sales will support the house, grounds and programs.
