Fodor's Review

On the Harvard University side of Harvard Square stands the Wadsworth House, a yellow clapboard structure built in 1726 as a home for Harvard presidents. It served as the first headquarters for George Washington, who arrived on July 2, 1775 to take command of the Continental Army, which he did the following day. The building, closed to the public, now houses general Harvard offices.
