About Ventfort Hall Mansion and Gilded Age Museum

Location:

104 WALKER ST, LENOX, MA 01240, US

Mission Statement

Ventfort Hall's mission is to preserve this Gilded Age "cottage" built for Sarah and George Morgan in Lenox, Massachusetts in 1893, for its continued use and enjoyment by future generations. Ventfort Hall's Museum of the Gilded Age seeks to educate people on the social changes which took place in America during the Gilded Age, through tours, lectures, exhibits, performances, and other events, and inspire an interest in preserving Gilded Age history, which has so profoundly affected the shape of modern society.

Description

Ventfort Hall is a mansion in Lenox MA, built in the Jacobean Revival-style, which once belonged to Sarah and George Morgan. The house has gone through several incarnations since the Morgans resided here, including as a lodging called Festival House in the 1950s, which was a temporary home for several artists and musicians. About half of the house is restored and furnished with period antiques. Restoration is an ongoing process. The mansion also houses a Gilded Age museum, which includes portraits, china, and a fan collection donated by the Foster family, as well as an exhibit on the Titanic and a collection of Gilded Age wedding dresses. We are looking to bring in a variety of new exhibits to the museum.
