10 Reasons to Visit the Crane Estate

From wandering the gardens and exploring the Great House to taking a hike and getting the perfect shot, we’ve rounded up all the best reasons to pay this Trustees property a visit.

To go back in time: The property got its name when industrialist Richard T. Crane, Jr. bought 800 acres on the Ipswich waterfront in 1910, but it was a notable spot for centuries before that. Native Americans valued the area for fishing and shell fishing, and the first governor of Massachusetts laid claim to the land in 1637.
