Event Details

In 1776, Franklin went to Paris to try and gain French support for the America war effort. One of the most important contacts he made there was not a fellow diplomat or politician, but a woman named Anne Louise Brillon de Jouy whose salon gatherings were attended by the wives of the elite. Hear the music of Franklin's Paris performed in the beautiful mansion at Gore Place by renowned pianist Sylvia Berry.

The elegantly furnished mansion has been called “the Monticello of the North” and architectural historians consider it to be the most significant Federal period mansion in New England.
