Newell Boathouse

Newell Boathouse is the home of Harvard Men's Crew. The elder statesman among Charles River boathouses, Newell Boathouse has maintained its charm, beauty and practicality for more than a century. Built in 1900 and named for Crimson rower and football star Marshall Newell '94, Newell was a gift of the Harvard Club of New York. Located just a short walk from most Harvard residences, between Harvard Square and the Soldiers Field athletics complex, the historic building is easily accessible for morning and afternoon workouts, both for indoor training and rowing on the Charles. The river runs through the heart of Harvard's campus and has the Boston skyline as its backdrop. There are eight miles of rowable water available for practice and the Head of the Charles Regatta passes right in front of Newell's dock. The Crimson's home races take place just a few strokes downstream in the Charles River basin. Newell's walls are replete with the history of the Harvard rowing programs, from championship plaques to posters, from team photos to treasured oars and boats. Team members and visitors alike marvel at the memorabilia proudly hung on the building's second floor. Yet Newell still remains more than capable of handling a rower's needs. It contains two indoor rowing tanks and modern practice equipment, a video room, space to house all the crew's shells, a workshop, meeting rooms, and locker facilities.
