Otis House Museum

Otis House Museum was built in the late 1600’s and is one of only a few First Period houses that are left in all of Boston. The house was occupied by many generations of the Pierce family, who were well established in the area. The home is normally closed to the public, however, they do open for a couple of hours a day and charge $5 for admission. The house has remained mostly untouched, offering lots of displays of the techniques and lifestyle of those from the 1600’s, as well as some of the 1700’s.
