Our visit began with a knock on the door, as it was locked and there is only one person staffing this mansion. We received a personalized tour, though we were ultimately joined by two more history buffs toward the end of the tour. This meant that our guide had to excuse himself for a few minutes, unlock the door to let in the other couple, and walk upstairs to resume. Though it's a small venue, it's a succinct and interesting walk back in time, to the late 1700's and beyond.

Today the mansion offers many period furnishings including several original Paine family pieces, a research center for the study and archival collection of the Paine family and the Col. Timothy Bigelow Chapter of the DAR

The Timothy Paine House is filled with history and a must see for those who love old houses filled with period pieces and information. Volunteer docents from the Timothy Bigelow Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) are filled with knowledge on this interesting family and the many collections in the house and bring the house alive. Truly a treasure in Worcester and a must see .

We'd like to express our gratitude to Gus Giordano for Hosting our Son's Wedding Reception at Union Station. It is such a gorgeous must see Historical Building! The ambiance of the room was breathtaking! The Chef was wonderful to work with! The Food & Service was Outstanding! Some of our guests flew into Boston's Logan Airport & took the train to Union Station. They also have a shuttle to the Hotel. Some of our guests took Limo's back & forth from the airport. Either way it was very convenient.
