Experience historic Boston from the mid 19th - early 20th centuries. Completed in 1860, the Gibson House stands virtually untouched as a historic house museum in Back Bay. In 2001, the National Park Service designated Gibson House as a National Historic Landmark. A unique and unspoiled single-family residence, it retains its formal rooms, private quarters, and servant work areas occupied from the late 19th to early 20th centuries. Visitors enjoy a glimpse into the lives of a well-to-do Boston family and the individuals working as their domestic staff.
