Did you ever want to step back in time to learn about the daily life of well-to-do Bostonians in the 19th and 20th centuries? The Nichols House Museum is a Boston Attraction that allows visitors to do just that.
About the Nichols House Museum:
Exploring the City’s history is a popular Thing to do in Boston, and many Boston Attractions focus on the big historical Events that took place here. The Nichols House Museum instead allows visitors to see what daily life was like for a Bostonian living on Beacon Hill. The house was built in 1804 and remained in the hands of the Nichols family for most of the years leading up to 1960.
Rose Standish Nichols lived in the house from 1885 to 1960. When she died, the house was willed to become a Museum. This Boston Attraction offers the fascinating opportunity to see a house just as it was when lived in by 19th and 20th century Bostonians. All of the furniture in the house belonged to the Nichols family. Other items, also belonging to the Nichols family, such as paintings, books and other objects, help to paint a picture of the daily lives of this family.
The Boston Park Plaza Hotel is located near many of the City’s most popular Attractions. Our Boston Hotel is also conveniently located near top Restaurants and many Things to do in Boston.
