Old State House Preservation

The Old State House is almost 300 years old, and it needs constant care. The Bostonian Society recently assumed authority for capital projects at the Old State House. To address the multi-faceted needs of this local and National Historic Landmark, the Society has developed a comprehensive master plan for the stabilization, restoration, and re-interpretation of the building.

Preservation efforts at the Old State House garnered The Bostonian Society a 2006 national award from the American Association for State and Local History and are featured in an episode of the History Channel’s series Save Our History.
