Become a Member of the Nichols House Museum

Dear Friend of the Nichols House Museum,

"The importance of our environment and its influence on our lives can hardly be over-estimated."
- Rose Standish Nichols, House Beautiful, January, 1911

We are delighted that you have chosen to attend one of our events or tours in the past and we would like to extend an invitation for you to join the Nichols House Museum. As you already know, the Nichols House is a jewel that transforms us each time we enter it, or attend one of its programs.

For over fifty years the Nichols House Museum's membership has sustained its preservation efforts, its activities, and its place among the historic houses of Boston. With this letter I invite you to join the Nichols House as a member. The museum is a favorite stop for international and domestic visitors who value its authenticity both, in representing Federal period architecture, and in providing a rare glimpse into the domestic sensibilities of Bostonians of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Just as importantly, the house resounds with the ideas of the innovative Rose Standish Nichols, a suffragist, a pacifist, a writer and one of America's first female landscape architects. She felt strongly about creating a warm, interesting and hospitable environment, and we hope you have felt this in action during your time with us.

We are gearing up for an exciting time with a number of new programs, our ongoing lecture series and hosting special events throughout the year. I am looking forward to meeting you and hope you will join us for a tour, a program or an event in the near future.

Among other popular activities we have planned for members and guests are:

  • Several programs in March celebrating Women’s History month.
  • Lectures, special exhibits and thematic tours, including “Makers Marks: Art, Craft and the Fiber of Change”, which will open this April.
  • The Spring Fête to take place on June 1, 2017 at the elegant Boston Athenaeum.

As a member, you will receive advance invitations with special admission rates to all of our programs and events. And, best of all, you and your guests will always receive free entry to the museum and special pricing on books and other items in our gift shop.

Your membership is critical because it provides support for the on-going programming and conservation efforts of the Nichols House Museum. Thank you for your continued support.

We look forward to hosting you soon.

Sincerely yours,

Victoria McKay
Executive Director
