The Great Hall

The Great Hall faces south, overlooking what in Shirley's time were formal gardens and terraces dropping to salt marshes and the sea. The Palladian treatment of the doorway inludes carved Corinthian pilasters, possibly the pilasters billed to Shirley in 1751 by Benjamin Eustis (1720-1804), no relation to the William Eustises. The staircase is a Federal addition. The sixteen-light chandelier, said originally to have hung in Saint John's College, Oxford, England, was recently given to the Shirley-Eustis House Association by Mr. and Mrs. Pierson Richardson. The mahogany and mahogany-veneered card table, probably Boston, 1820-1840, is the gift of Mrs. Richard Bancroft.
