Become a Member of the Nichols House Museum

June 2015

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, as the new Executive Director, 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 suffragette, 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.

I am thrilled to join the Nichols House Museum and its staff. We are gearing up for an exciting time with a number of new programs, reimagining 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 lecture or an event in the near future.

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

  • The Spring FĂȘte to take place on June 4th at the elegant Boston Athenaeum.
  • Lectures, special exhibits and thematic tours in the Fall.
  • The festive Nichols House Holiday House Tour scheduled for December 13th.

As a member, you will receive advance invitations with special admission rates to all of our events and lectures. 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 Glazomitsky
Executive Director
