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.
