Stonehurst, the Robert Treat Paine Estate is n icon of American design created by H.H. Richardson and F.L. Olmsted.

Visit the convention-breaking interiors of Stonehurst, the country place of social reformer Robert Treat Paine and his family, where architect H.H. Richardsonís bold plan and flowing spaces combine with rich textures and handcrafted details, heralding the Arts and Crafts Movement in America.

The house crowns a spectacular rise selected by F.L. Olmsted, founder of the parks movement nationwide. Experience Olmstedís naturalistic approach to landscape design on the rolling meadows, curved terrace and rocky outcrops of the estate grounds or hike across woodland trails that wind through over 100 acres of surrounding conservation land.

Owned by the City of Waltham.
