The Nichols House Museum was home to landscape gardener, suffragist, and pacifist Rose Standish Nichols and her family from 1885 to 1960. The museum occupies an 1804 Bulfinch townhouse, among the earliest of its kind on Beacon Hill. Furnished with an original collection, the interiors reflect the cultural values and changing tastes across two generations of Nichols ownership. Highlights include sculpture by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, European paintings, Japanese woodblock prints, and American furniture. Visitors also encounter stories of family, staff, and Boston’s historic Beacon Hill neighborhood.
