There you’ll find luxurious, multimillion-dollar estates, which continue a tradition dating back to the town’s Gilded Age starting in the late 1800s, when Boston industrialists built their “summer cottages” in Manchester to escape the city. “It’s some of the most beautiful real estate that I’ve seen,” says Lanse L.
