Lessons from the Fairies”:

June 30th through October 31, 2020

The Fairy Houses will once again grace the woodlot at Highfield Hall & Gardens!

Fairy House Utopia can take many forms and Highfield Hall welcomed proposals from individuals, couples, or families. 

Thirty creations, made by natural or up cycled materials, will be on the property, chosen by originality, choice of materials, site sensitivity, a sketch, and a written description about what makes the fairy house Utopian in character.  Enjoy!

Highfield Hall & Gardens is not your typical historic estate. While there’s plenty of history within these glorious old walls, Highfield is a vibrant cultural center surrounded by restored gardens, peaceful walking trails and conservation land.

The magnificently restored 1878 estate of the Beebe family has been transformed into a vibrant center of cultural and community life on Cape Cod. The story of this property is a dramatic one as it was, literally, saved from the wrecking ball in 1994 and lovingly restored, opening as a museum and historic site in late 2006. From 2011 to 2013, the property’s two magnificent gardens also underwent restoration.
