Thu, 10/27/2016 - 6:00pm - 8:00pm

Cambridge Historical Society presents a 3-part symposium about the past, present and future of affordable housing in Cambridge.


Welcome to the Hooper-Lee-Nichols House. The original section of this building was built in the late 17th century, making it the second oldest house in Cambridge and one of the oldest houses in New England. From its location on Brattle Street, it has witnessed the beginning of the American Revolution, the birth of the abolitionist movement, the formation of America as an industrial powerhouse, and the counter culture revolution of the 1960s.
