Overlooking a farm and pleasure grounds, the Codman Estate in Lincoln, Massachusetts, also known as “the Grange,” was a powerful force in the lives of five generations of the Codman family. Each generation left its mark, and the estate came to symbolize the family’s fascinating past.
Today the house is filled with art and memorabilia collected in Europe and America, showing the decorative schemes of every era, including those of noted early twentieth-century interior designer Ogden Codman Jr. The grounds feature a hidden turn-of-the-century Italian garden with perennial beds, statuary, and a reflecting pool filled with water lilies, as well as a 1930s English cottage garden. The carriage house and grounds are available to rent for weddings and other events.
The Codman Estate is located at 34 Codman Road, Lincoln, Massachusetts 01773.
