The Mansion at Turner Hill

The Grand Mansion, completed in 1903 by architect William G. Rantoul, was built for Boston industrialist Charles Rice and his wife Anne Proctor Rice. The Rice family used it as their year-round home, frequently entertaining guests. In 1943, the Grand Mansion was sold to the Catholic Church, where it became the National Shrine of our Lady of La Salette for over 50 years. In 1997, the estate was sold and became privately owned. Added to the National Registry of Historic Places in 1982, the mansion has plaster hand-molded ceilings, vivid wall friezes, oak hardwood floors, and hand-carved paneling, doors and stairways.
