Estate of Mind

ESTATE OF MIND is an intentional co-living community of artists, creatives, and makers, with a focus on collaborative projects and events. We operate out of Oakhurst Manor, a storied Victorian manor complex on 25-acres in Whitinsville, MA. We are collectively restoring & revitalizing this historic event venue with the shared goal of creating local hub for arts & lifestyle events. Come make art, theatre, or sawdust with us!

ESTATE OF MIND is an open-to-the-public, pay-what-you-can, volunteer-run, donation-based event venue, available for bookings like photo/video shoots, private parties, community events, workshops, performances, activity or activism meetups, and more. Read more about how to book the est8. Use the links below to schedule a site visit or call with our community manager, Victoria Dobbs, to start planning an event or collaboration.

If you're interested in visiting & exploring the property as a guest, we offer a 90-minute history & vision walking tour every Sunday at 11:30am, as part of our OpenArt Sundays, which are full of recurring events open to the community. Read more about these events here.
