Preserving Brucemore's Heritage

Caring for the buildings, objects, and grounds

Brucemore is committed to preserving the site in the spirit of the families who once called this place home. Their dedication to and support of the community is continued today in Brucemore's mission — to engage the public in the history, traditions, resources, and on-going preservation for the enrichment of the community.

Brucemore believes the heart of preservation lies in the continued use and enjoyment of the estate. Our staff, volunteers, and contract professionals focus relentlessly on the care of this site's buildings, objects, and landscapes through thoughtful and responsible use to continue making it available for future generations.
