The Architecture

The Architecture

Salisbury Mansion was built in the Georgian style that was in vogue in the mid-18th century.  While Salisbury Mansion wouldn’t pass muster compared to urban high-end dwellings found in large metropolitan centers like Boston, it was a “mansion” in still rural Worcester.  High-style Georgian is strictly symmetrical without and within.

The former store space or “new” part of the house, which was completed in 1820, features elegant Federal detailing within and without, a proper through-hallway with pattern book entry surrounds, and a columned front portico. This 1820 renovation expanded the living space to include double drawing rooms, a library, and chambers above for family and staff use.
