A Note On The The Hampshire House

The Hampshire House is a turn-of-the-century mansion on historic Beacon Hill, where generations of Bostonians and their guests have celebrated weddings, birthdays, and Fourth of July.

Designed and built in 1910 by the society architect, Ogden Codman for fellow Brahmins Bayard and Ruth Thayer, the five story Georgian revival townhouse was lavished with Italian marble, carved oak paneling, crystal chandeliers and tall Palladian windows. The Hampshire House, located at 84 Beacon Street, was Boston’s most fashionable venue.

The Hampshire House acquired its name during World War II when the Thayer family sold the building; when it was leased as a small private luxury hotel to the owners of the Lincolnshire Hotel on Charles Street. They dubbed the mansion the Hampshire House (Lincolnshire and Hampshire were both English counties).

Thomas A. Kershaw has been the owner of the Hampshire House since 1969.
