Boston Museums+Attractions: Tory Row
Before and after the Revolutionary War, “Tory Row” was the nickname of Cambridge’s picturesque Brattle Street, which extends from Harvard Square. It was so named because it was home to residents who sympathized with King George, known as Loyalists or Tories. Today, this residential avenue boasts stunning architecture like the Longfellow National Historic Site.
