Castle Hill, a 165-acre National Historic Landmark, was the summer home of Chicago industrialist Richard T. Crane Jr. and his family from 1910-1949. They entertained in grand style at their 59-room English-style mansion and its surrounding gardens. Now owned by The Trustees, Castle Hill on the Crane Estate is the perfect setting for a lawn party celebrating the music and dance from its hey-day.
Greater Boston Vintage Society, VINTAGE FAIRE ORGANIZER
The Greater Boston Vintage Society is a vintage-themed social group focused on educating its members as well as the public about the ways of the past through first-person interaction. It is about exploring history and keeping a connection with where we come from. There is a world of lost culture that can be rediscovered through putting on the “threads” of not so long ago.
GBVS members hail from all over New England and beyond. We welcome all types and all ages. Don’t have a vintage outfit? It’s not as hard to obtain as you think, knowledge is the most important step and we’re here to help!
