  • Description

    This was the home of Rose Standish Nichols – a landscape gardener, pacifist, suffragist, a member of the Cornish Art Colony, and one of the founders of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom. The four-story house preserves the lifestyle of a typical Beacon Hill family during the 19th and early 20th century.
    The rooms, converted to galleries, showcase the original furnishing and art pieces the Nichols’ collected over the years, such as 17th and 19th centuries American and European wooden furniture, Flemish tapestries, family portraits, oriental rugs, Italian paintings, and a sculpture made by Augustus Saint-Gaudens.
    Hear the story of Rose and her family, and enjoy special events, including ‘Nichols after Dark’, gallery talks, and the Traditional Beacon Hill Eggnog Party.
