The stately Gore Place estate is one of Waltham's better known historical attractions, but few people realize that discoveries about the house, which was built in 1804, and its first owners, Christopher and Rebecca Gore, are still being made.

The Waltham Historical Society is sponsoring a lecture by Gore Place Executive Director Susan Robertson entitled "Gore Place - Recent Findings of Research in the Mansion." The talk is about some of the new archaeological, architectural and archival discoveries connected to the site.

The free lecture begins at 7 p.m. on Jan. 8 in the RTN Federal Credit Union building at 600 Main Street.
