The Last Mansion in West End

This national historic landmark has the honor of being the very last surviving mansion in Bowdoin Square. The house was designed by Charles Bulfinch for Harrison Gray Otis, a prominent Federalist lawyer and politician in the late 18th and early 19th century.

The house, built in 1796, is now home to a museum that educates visitors on life in the house during the Federal era. The architecture of the house reflects the style of that period with a brick exterior with string courses, a Palladian window, and a typical central hall plan in the interior. Visit Otis House for a tour and learn about the history of Otis in this mansion/boarding house turned museum as well as the history of early Boston and how the West End area developed.
