Harvard Univeristy Archives Cambridge Public Library Longfellow House and Washington's Headquarters The Cambridge City Clerk The Schlesinger Library The Cambridge Historical Society The Houghton Library The Cambridge Historical Commission Mount Auburn Cemetery

The 2011 open archives tour was a great success. Participants had a chance to look behind-the-scenes and see examples of rare, original material from collections of manuscripts, photographs and ephemera. All of the spaces on the tour filled and we even had a waiting list. The tour was commended by the city council in an official proclamation.
