This visit to The Crane Estate wasn't in our plans but a lovely lady suggested it to me so here I am! As usual, we spent the entire afternoon out there, mostly in the gorgeous garden. A little bit about the history of this beautiful estate.
Centuries before becoming a grand summer estate owned by one of America’s wealthiest families, Castle Hill was well known by Native Americans, who called the area Agawam, referring to its rich fishery. In 1925 magnate Richard T. Crane Jr. was living the dream in a fabulous English-style summer house on a hilltop surrounded by the ocean in Ipswich Crane, where he would host lavish parties with his wife Florence. As the story goes, Crane sailed past this spot in 1910 and was struck by its beauty and seclusion, deeming it the perfect spot for his summer home. He bought all the land he could see, ultimately accumulating 3,500 acres and six islands. Behind the "great house" on the Crane Estate in Ipswich, Massachusetts, a vast lawn rolls out half a mile to a bluff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. In my opinion, this is the most impressive fact about this estate, something unique and fabulous at the same time.
Once again we had the best time visiting a piece of history, an impressive one!
