The Royall house.

THE Royall House has been furnished by the Sarah Bradlee Fulton Chapter, D. A.R., this year, and is used by them as a Chapter House. It is also open to visitors every day except Sunday. Since the opening day, April 19, 1900, over eight hundred have availed themselves of the privilege of visiting the historic mansion. That the fame of the place has gone far and wide is proved by those who come from long distances. Persons registered from many distant States, including Mississippi, Florida, Texas, California, and Washington on the Pacific, and even from Canada, England, and Honolulu.

Several members of the Royall family have been at the house, and other descendants of those who in bygone days made the house their home.

The Harvard Summer School were interested guests in July, and note-books were in demand when the Regent of the Chapter read a short historical address. Various chapters of the Daughters of the American Revolution and the Boston Society Sons of the American Revolution have made the house the goal of their summer outings.

September twentieth the State Regent and regents of Massachusetts D. A.R. held a meeting at the house and discussed at length the possibility of making the place a permanent historical museum.
