We had 3 historic houses on our list, and Nichols House was closest. We made a good choice. Our docent was very knowledgeable, and gave us a thorough overview of the many topics that this house addresses. Like many, if not most, historic houses, Nichols House is interesting for a variety of reasons--including architecture, context in Boston history, personalities and accomplishments of the owners, construction and renovation details, particular items of historic or intrinsic value, etc-- and each visitor will probably want to know more about a different aspect. In sum--the house is charming, evoking a Boston sensibility that this Midwestern visitor found delightful and informative, and leaves me interested to read more about the family (and especially about Rose Nichols). And of course the neighborhood is fabulous (a special thank you to the Nichols House historian who pointed out several other noteworthy buildings on the block).
