Boston’s Tiffany Treasure

Built between 1899 and 1902 for businessman and art collector Frederick Ayer, the Ayer Mansion is the only surviving residence created by American artist and designer, Louis Comfort Tiffany. 

Named a National Historic Landmark in 2005, the Ayer Mansion exemplifies what one critic of the day called Tiffany’s “dumbfounding versatility.” At the Ayer Mansion, Tiffany-designed stone and glass mosaics, graceful metalwork, Favrile glass vases, custom furniture, intricate plaster work, elaborate art glass windows, and unexpected architectural flourishes all work together to create a cohesive masterpiece.

For more than 15 years, the Campaign for the Ayer Mansion has been restoring and preserving this singular treasure. Now home to the non-profit Bayridge Residence & Cultural Center, the Ayer Mansion is open twice monthly for scheduled public tours and by appointment as well as during its annual lecture series and other public events.

Come experience Louis Comfort Tiffany’s vision for a grand Boston home.










The Ayer Mansion is a proud recipient of a 2009 Save America’s Treasures grant.
