Evening Event Supports Historic Landmark in Wrentham Community

 WRENTHAM—On Saturday, Nov. 2nd, the Proctor Mansion Inn invites the community to enjoy “Then and Now,” a night of music, food, and dancing. The event marks 10 years of the mansion’s renewed life in Wrentham as an integral part of the community. It will feature light appetizers, cheeses, and desserts catered by Chef Paul Streichert, as well as a wine tasting. Guests will enjoy live music and dancing in the mansion’s L’Enfant Ballroom, a cash wine/beer bar, and an auction both silent and live. Festivities begin at 7PM at Proctor Mansion Inn at 36 Common Street, Wrentham MA. Tickets are $75 per person. Space is limited due to capacity.

Before owners Brian and Dawn Fitzgerald took over the 1861 Victorian mansion in 2009, the property was vacant and faced multiple mechanical and superficial deteriorations. The dilapidated porch was unsafe. Holes perforated the roof. Water damage plagued the walls, foyer, and ceilings. The eyesore property had fallen into a state of disrepair neglectful of its rich history.

The Fitzgeralds lovingly restored the Proctor Mansion Inn to its Victorian grandeur.  All who visit admire and appreciate this historic gem. One international guest expressed their admiration by saying, “Thank you for this wonderful Victorian experience! We will talk about this location throughout Florence and Italy!”

Located across from the Wrentham Town Common, the Proctor Mansion Inn brings business to Wrentham as the only Bed and Breakfast in town. It also provides lodging to visitors to the Wrentham Premium Outlets, Patriot Place, and other local attractions. As an event venue, the Proctor Mansion Inn has hosted many private events including weddings, birthdays, and holiday parties. Public events are also popular, such as Victorian Teas and children’s events.

The Proctor Mansion Inn has gained broader appeal, too, serving as the movie set for the popular Lifetime/Netflix holiday romance movie, “The Spirit of Christmas.” Each year, movie fans gather to view this timeless classic on location.

Brian and Dawn invite the community to help celebrate this 10-year milestone as a testament to how far The Proctor Mansion Inn has come. In addition, they hope to identify partnership opportunities with local businesses, benefactors, and foundations interested in making a continued positive impact in the community, and in keeping this important historical property thriving.

As Brian says, “Preserving the history of this wonderful property has been of utmost importance. Restoration efforts to date have been done in the most original and careful way possible.  Certain needed restoration efforts are, however, out of scope of normal business operations and yet are still very important to the property and community for continued historic preservation. Funds raised throughout this fundraising campaign will go directly towards the many ongoing restoration projects to keep this rich history alive.”

Tickets for “Then and Now” are limited and on sale now at the Inn and online at We advise early purchase to ensure availability. Tickets are $75 per person. Attire is Cocktail Casual.
