The Nichols House Museum

Amid the beautiful townhouses of Boston's historic Beacon Hill district stands the home of a remarkable woman, Miss Rose Standish Nichols. Her four story townhouse at 55 Mount Vernon Street was built in 1804 and is attributed to Charles Bulfinch, renowned Boston architect. The Federal style home contains a dazzling array of artwork collected by the Nichols family, from paintings and prints to antique furniture, silver, textiles, and ceramics. This varied collection spans the globe and centuries as well, representing American, Asian, and European art from the 16th to the 20th centuries. Among the many cherished objects in the Museum's collection are works by Miss Nichols' uncle, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, America's foremost sculptor of the 19th century.
