The Gibson House, built as the city filled in the Back Bay in the 1850s, is now “the city’s most obscure tourist destination,” preserved on a modest budget with its Victorian furnishings intact. The Globe further reports that after Charles Gibson Jr. decided in the 1930s that he would make the house a museum, he banned guests from sitting on the furniture. This talk should be good.
