Otis House Museum

Admission included

Discover what life was like for Boston’s elite after the American Revolution, as the city grew and Beacon Hill became Boston’s most fashionable address. In 1796, Harrison Gray Otis, a congressman and real estate entrepreneur, and his wife, Sally, lived and entertained lavishly in this elegantly furnished home designed by their friend Charles Bulfinch. Learn about the Otises, their young family, their servants, and the people who lived here after them, when the building was a genteel boarding house. The house portrays both high style living in the Federal era and the cycles of change in a dynamic neighborhood.
