Gardiner Chandler Mansion

Add to plan Remove from plan

Sheriff Gardiner Chandler (1723-1782) was a prominent Tory, active in royalist resistance until threatened with confiscation of his considerable property. (His unrelenting brother John was banished, never to return, and his property seized.) Gardiner built a fine Georgian mansion in 1750 on Nobility Hill, across the street from Old South. When the house was torn down in 1867, a built-in cupboard (“beaufat”) was salvaged and is now installed in the museum’s Rice Gallery.
