Saturday, April 1, 1:00 and 3:00 p.m.
Otis House, 141 Cambridge Street, Boston, Mass.
The Boston House Museum Alliance presents its spring 2017 tour series, Business as Usual: Families and Work at Boston’s Historic Houses.
For these special tours, Otis House, Gibson House, Paul Revere House, Prescott House, and Nichols House draw on their rich collections and stories to illuminate some of the business pursuits and labor well-to-do Bostonians engaged in over three centuries.
Six months after moving into his new home on Cambridge Street, Harrison Gray Otis was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. Thus began a successful political career that would span thirty-five years. The Otis House tour focuses on Otis as a politician and real estate developer, as well as the businesses women ran out of this building in the nineteenth century. Tickets are sold separately at each site.
