Textile manufacturer Moses Tyler Stevens created the estate between 1884 and 1886, with architect William Cummings Richardson, who designed the mansion and several outbuildings. Richardson emulated the Romanesque Revival style popularized by H. H. Richardson (no relation).
The property has twice been saved from development: in 1951 it was donated to Boston University by the Stevens heirs to avoid that fate; and the town of North Andover purchased the property in 1995 when the university planned to sell it for development as house lots. It is operated as a conference center and is a popular venue for weddings.
