Stonehurst, the Robert Treat Paine Estate

Add to plan Remove from plan

Visit the convention-breaking interiors of Stonehurst, the country place of social reformer Robert Treat Paine and his family, where architect H.H. Richardson's bold plan and flowing spaces combine with rich textures and handcrafted details, heralding the Arts and Crafts movement in America. The house crowns a spectacular rise selected by F.L. Olmsted, founder of the parks movement nationwide. Experience Olmsted's naturalistic approach to landscape design on the rolling meadows, curved terrace, and rocky outcrops of the estate grounds or hike across woodland trails that wind through over 100 acres of surrounding conservation land. Owned by the City of Waltham.
