Lyman Estate

Waltham, MA

About

The beautiful Lyman Estate, with its thirty-seven acres of lawns and gardens, offers a private and exceptional setting for events, including weddings and private parties, corporate events and outings, business meetings and seminars, and holiday parties. Designed in 1793 for shipping merchant Theodore Lyman, the estate was the home of the prominent Lyman family for more than 150 years.

Surrounded by extensive lawns and perennial gardens, the centrally air-conditioned Lyman Estate offers an elegant setting. Use of indoor and outdoor areas gives you maximum flexibility in planning your party. Enjoy a cocktail hour in the garden. Dine al fresco on the covered veranda overlooking the landscaped grounds. Host intimate dinner parties in antique-filled parlors. Dance in the magnificent ballroom where the waltz was introduced to Boston society.
