The Stevens Estate at Osgood Hill is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is one of the last Grand Victorian estates in North America. The country mansion, with its noteworthy red brick bonding and turreted roof is part of a complex of buildings designed by Earnest Bowditch on the 153 acre estate, which also features a riverstone and red slate gatehouse and the estate’s original red brick carriagehouse. A winding driveway reveals the mansion atop Osgood Hill, nestled among long-established trees and rolling lawns.
Built for Moses Stevens in 1886, this magnificent example of an Aesthetic Period design was famed for its spectacular garden parties that attracted many hundreds of guests who worked for the Stevens textile mill empire up and down the east coast, and beyond. Romanesque arches, finest imported hardwoods, distinctive marble fireplaces and textured wall treatments are featured inside the mansion or grand house, which was designed by prominent Boston architects Henry Hartwell and William Richardson. The impressive features reflect the success and prominence of the Stevens’ family during the last century.
Today, this beautiful estate is owned by the Town of North Andover and revenues generated from our events are reinvested into the estate for restoration and repair of the mansion, estate buildings and grounds. When you choose to reserve The Stevens Estate for your event, wedding or meeting, you are helping to preserve this amazing estate for future generations. Have at it!
