Chateau Higginson: Social Life in Boston’s Back Bay, 1870–1920

June 21, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EDT

Free – $10

Chateau Higginson is a vivid and absorbing account of one man’s efforts to construct a building that would create “a new way for Bostonians—and Americans—to live.” Henry Lee Higginson is best known for founding the Boston Symphony Orchestra, but exploring his housing gamble helps bring him to life, as well as a whole social class in 19th-century urban America.

There will be a pre-talk reception at 5:30 by Margo Miller, Boston Globe (retired)

There is a $10 per person fee (no charge for MHS Fellows and Members or EBT cardholders).

Registration Required.
