The Forges of Chiltonville was one of Plymouth’s most magnificent 19th-century estates. Built as a grand hunting lodge in the early 1890s by retail magnate Eben Jordan Jr., and later purchased by Boston attorney Sherman Whipple as a summer estate, the massive English Tudor manse known as “Chilton Hall” survived less than 50 years before being destroyed. Join architect Bill Fornaciari for an intimate look at a lost architectural masterpiece, featuring an extraordinary collection of family photographs, memorabilia, and oral histories from the Whipple, Withington, and Brewster families.
