NIGHT OUT

Gropius House, Lincoln

DAVID CARMACK/HISTORIC NEW ENGLAND

Looking for a little something different to do on a Friday night? Surprise your date with a trip to bucolic Lincoln to visit Gropius House, a 1938 modernist home that brought the essence of the Bauhaus architectural movement to fruition. Every aspect of the house and its surrounding landscape was planned for maximum efficiency and simplicity. Walter Gropius, founder of the German design school known as the Bauhaus, carefully sited the house to complement its New England habitat on a rise within an orchard of 90 apple trees. From May through September, this gem hosts a monthly “Evening at Gropius” that includes a slide show, house tour, and light refreshments. The house at night also shows off Gropius’s innovative lighting scheme.

The next event is Aug. 15, from 7-9 p.m. $25 Historic New England members, $35 nonmembers, registration required. Call 781-259-8098 for more information.
