Built in 1893, Ventfort Hall was the summer "cottage" of Sarah Morgan, the sister of financier J.P. Morgan. Lively tours offer a peek into the lifestyles of Lenox's superrich "cottage class." Although the property is being restored, the many rooms that are open reveal the original stained-glass windows and hand-carved woodwork. The museum has rotating exhibits that explore the role of Lenox and the Berkshires as the era's definitive mountain retreat. Victorian high tea
is among the highlights.
