While much is known about the Wards and their home, there remains a great deal to discover. To that end, many of the research materials from the house have been digitized and are accessible through this website.

Collection 1

In addition to published and unpublished scholarship, the house collections are available online through a Harvard Libraries Virtual Collection. The Virtual Collection includes manuscripts, photographs, and records on a number of objects in the house. In addition, original Ward family documents are in archival holdings in several locations.


Of course, the greatest resource for researchers is the house, itself, and the objects it contains. Researchers are encouraged to visit the house and to contact the staff in advance to make the visit as fruitful as possible
