Now the headquarters of the Cambridge Historical Society, this c 1685 Georgian mansion is open for architectural tours, which show off the massive stone fireplace in the Chandler room and hand-painted wallpaper in the Bosphorous room. This is just one of many spectacular colonial-era residences on Brattle St. Lined with mansions that were once home to royal sympathizers, the street earned the nickname Tory Row.
