Congratulations to you both on your engagement! Planning for your upcoming Wedding is now underway and we know the importance of finding just the right location for your Reception to create the day you have always dreamed of. Your choice will often help you to “set the tone” for many of your wedding details. The Daniel Webster Estate is a Queen Anne-style Mansion set on fourteen acres of rolling lawns. Our stained-glass windows, fireplaces, mantles and dramatic grand staircase tell of a turn-of-the-century elegance and our state-of-the-art kitchen and service area, air-conditioned rooms and light and airy interiors tell of our desire to give our Brides and Guests a relaxed and comfortable setting for a most memorable day.
Our lovely wrap-around veranda hints of days-gone-by. Two ponds, antique Linden trees and a peaceful, secluded setting create a graceful backdrop for a beautiful event.

The History of The Trust
The DWPT was formed in 1989 by Jim Cantwell, Michael Donohue and Bob McCracken and incorporated it in February 1990 in order to keep the estate from development and preserve it for public use and enjoyment. Early on the Trust worked with the Historical Commission to secure the house by having it included on the National Registry of Historical Places and Trust.
In 1995, a Town Meeting voted to purchase the house and remaining 14 acres for $500,000. Half of that sum was provided by a MA state grant. The Town, through the Historical Commission and Massachusetts Historical, secured grant money to restore the mansion and in 2005 the Pilgrim Hall Museum in Plymouth sponsored a designer show house there. The designers completed the interior decoration and some landscaping of the property.
