Celebrating 50 Years at the Hampshire House Giveaway 
Posted on: May 17, 2019

 At the Hampshire House we are surrounded by a lot of Boston’s history, from the walls within our building to the views of Boston Public Garden out our windows. This year we celebrate a very special part of our history on June 10:

We are celebrating 50 years of Thomas Kershaw’s ownership of the Hampshire House!

Throughout our half century of operation, the Hampshire House has become a beloved mainstay for Bostonian celebrations by hosting thousands of weddings, rehearsal dinners, holiday parties, corporate events, and personal celebrations. We are also the home to the beloved Bull + Finch Pub/Cheers restaurant, which has been operating on the ground floor since December 1969. Additionally, we have added a number of other cherished restaurants to the Hampshire House Corporation including 75 on Chestnut, a bistro at the flat of Beacon Hill; a Cheers at Faneuil Hall Marketplace; and 75 on Liberty Wharf.

“When you start a business when you are 30 years old and live to be 80, 50 years in the same business is a big deal,” said Tom. “I purchased the property in 1969 with the idea to keep the mansion’s original grandeur while accommodating Bostonians and tourists for special events that they would never forget. As we look back, I know that we have achieved that goal. Not only is the Hampshire House a key part of our guests’ most treasured memories, but the mansion is now a beloved establishment in Boston.”

To celebrate all of the memories hosted at the Hampshire House, from the blizzard of 1978 to last weekend’s wedding, we are hosting a social media contest for a chance to win two complimentary tickets to the private 50th anniversary celebration on Monday, June 10 at the Hampshire House.
