This lovely estate named “Green Harbor” was the country home of the famous orator and statesman Daniel Webster until his death in 1852. During the twenty years that he lived here, the property grew to nearly 1,800 acres. After an unfortunate fire that destroyed his home in 1878, his daughter-in-law Caroline White Webster enlisted the services of William Gibbons Preston, a prominent Boston architect to construct this lovely Queen Anne-style home in 1880.
The estate has gone through a number of changes over the years. Much of the land has been sold and the property now consists of 14 acres of lawns and beautiful woodlands. A series of families have lived here and for many years it was the summer camp for the local children. After being purchased by the Town of Marshfield and undergoing extensive renovation, it was the Pilgrim Hall Museum’s 2005 Designer Show House. This was the beginning of a new chapter in the life of this historic estate.
Presently, the Daniel Webster Preservation Trust oversees the estate. It is available for celebrations such as weddings, special occasion parties as well corporate meetings and seminars. During the first week of December interior and floral designers work their magic and the estate is transformed into a sparkling holiday wonderland.
