Fodor's Expert Review Elmwood

Cambridge House/Mansion/Villa

Shortly after its construction in 1767, this three-story Georgian house was abandoned by its owner, colonial governor Thomas Oliver. Elmwood House was home to the accomplished Lowell family for two centuries. Elmwood is now the Harvard University president's residence, ever since student riots in 1969 drove President Nathan Pusey from his house in Harvard Yard.
