  • The visit to the home of Harrison Gray Otis is a good experience, transports you to the different stages of the time since the construction of the House, its architecture and thought of couple Otis, additionally interesting is the history of its architect Charles Bulfinch, as we said was the first architect of USA. Another interesting part of the story is when fully raised House to move a few meters and not collapse it as heritage of the city.

  • Historic house on cambridge street. The house was saved for preservation. It had many other owners and uses and had to be restored to its original look. They did restore most rooms to the original look. The furniture is mostly not original to the house but for the period. Overall the house is interesting but if you're looking for a completely preserved house with original furniture this is not the place. It's a nice stop if you are looking for something to do.
  • Great example of early Boston architecture. The interior has been painstakingly restored with rooms representing 3 eras of its existence. The tour guides are extremely knowledgeable and do a great job telling the history and fielding questions.
  • The Otis House is a nicely preserved bit of New England history, and the tour guides (at least on "First Night", when we went) were knowledgeable and moved at a good pace. Having said that, it is just a house, and only really remarkable by virtue of it's age and the work put into maintaining it as an exhibit of colonial life. This is best taken in with the other small downtown historical sites like the old state house, and the granary burial ground, but the few extra minutes to walk over to it from these locations are probably worth while.
