Quincy Marketplace

This historic Boston market has been around since 1826, and today has over a hundred pushcarts, shops, restaurants, and food court stops. Across the three market buildings (Quincy Market, South Market and North Market), you can find interesting coffees, artisanal bread, fresh seafood and of course, the Boston favorites: lobster rolls, clam chowder and Boston cream pie.


Hammond Castle

Hammond Castle Museum is located on the coast of Gloucester, Massachusetts. It was constructed in 1926 by inventor John Hays Hammond, Jr. as his residence. In the style of medieval castle, it was built to house his private collection of artifacts from ancient Rome through the Renaissance. Visitors can explore the many rooms of the castle, as well as enjoy the beauty of the castle grounds and view of the Atlantic Shoreline.


Trinity Church

Trinity Episcopal Church is a historic Episcopal church building in Lenox, Massachusetts. Built in 1888 for a congregation organized in 1793, it is a prominent local example of Romanesque architecture, funded by Gilded Age summer congregants.


Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum

The Museum is a remarkable achievement of Isabella Stewart Gardner, who formed the collection, designed the building, and opened the Museum to the public in 1903. The Museum's three floors of galleries open onto a central courtyard filled with flowering plants. The appeal of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum lies not simply in its rich collections but in its total impression. The spirit of the architecture, the personal character of arrangement of the art, and the color and fragrance of the courtyard all create an atmosphere that delights the senses and sparks the imagination. The art collection is displayed in a 15th century Venetian-style palazzo with a beautiful flowering courtyard.



Vaillancourt Chalkware is a fine art quality collectible that is hand painted in the Sutton, MA studios. With a passion for history, antiques, and Christmas, Chalkware Santas and other holiday chalkware are certain to inspire.
