Otis House Student Tour

Massachusetts: Metro Boston

Take your students on a trip back to the year 1800! This short program is designed to fit into a day-long class trip to Boston. Museum educators lead students on a dynamic, interactive tour of the home of the Otises, a young family living in Boston after the American Revolution. Students explore life on Beacon Hill in the Federal Era, when the neighborhood around Massachusetts' new State House was the fashionable place to live, and see how both wealthy and working class people lived in early 1800s Boston.
