Visitor Center and Mercantile
Start your visit to the Gerrit Smith Estate with a stop at the "The Lodge".

The Estate building known as "The Lodge" now serves as the Visitors Center for the Gerrit Smith Estate.  Stop by before you start your tour of the Estate, and watch a short orientation video on the life of Gerrit Smith. The Lodge also serves as the home of the Peterboro Mercantile, a gift shop that carries books, mugs, T-shirts, and other Peterboro heritage items.

The entrance to the Visitor center is from Oxbow Road, with public parking in front of the building (on the lawn). The building entrance is from the porch. For wheelchair access follow the gravel driveway around to the rear of the building. The entrance fee is $3 for adults, free for students. The Estate is operated by volunteers, so any additional donation is greatly appreciated. 


June 6 - August 30, 2020 Saturdays - Sundays 1-5 pm

The grounds are open for self guided tours from dawn to dusk every day.

And the Peterboro Mercantile On-Line store is always open 24/7/365!
