The Oliver House is open for the summer and has a variety of different events for all ages and interests.
The Oliver House will be open every Wednesday and Saturday for guided historic tours of the house and gardens. This event is part of the Passport to History program, which features museums and historic sites throughout New England. Tours for this event run every hour from 12:00 PM until 4:00 PM. The first tour begins at 12:00 PM and the last tour of the day will begin at 3:00 PM.
Admission for the one-hour tour is a $5.00 donation that is taken at the door when you arrive. Reservations are recommended and can be made by visiting Oliverestate.eventbrite.com. All proceeds are used to support historic venues.
If some quiet time in the garden enjoying some fresh baked goods and beverages is your “cup of tea”, then join us for our Goodies in the Garden event. Everyone had such a great time last year we have decided to have some treats for you in the garden again this summer.
The dates for Goodies in the Garden are July 16, 22 and 29, 2021. There will be two seatings on each day. The first seating is at 1:00 PM and the second is at 3:00 PM.
There is limited seating with tables for 4 people, so grab 3 friends or family and come and enjoy some time basking in the serene surroundings of the gardens while you enjoy delectable desserts at the Oliver Estate. Tickets are $15.00 per person and are available through Oliverestate.eventbrite.com. All proceeds go toward the upkeep of Oliver House.
And lastly, for the paranormal enthusiasts, we will be offering our first public ghost tour of the summer on August 7, 2021. Two time slots are available; the first at 6 pm and the second at 9:30 pm. Each tour will last 2 1/2 hours.
As you tour the house, your guide will provide the history of the Estate. Equipment will be provided for you to use as you walk through the house and hear accounts of the paranormal activity that has been experienced here over the years. Perhaps you will see or hear something yourself! This event is for anyone ages 9 and up.
