About

This blog will feature historic buildings from throughout Massachusetts, although right now the focus is on Boston, Cambridge and Salem. I hope to make more excursions from Connecticut (where I live) to other towns in Massachusetts. Until then, I will occasionally update the site with pics I have from earlier visits. This site’s companion blog, Historic Buildings of Connecticut, is updated much more frequently.

    Is there a comprehensive listing available of Bulfinch-designed buildings, houses, etc. in Massachusetts?

    Is it possible?It’s just for my Phd thesis. I will credit you, of course.

    Thank you,

    Hello,

    The association 40m3 in co edition with the Brittany Contemporary Art Collection is setting up the publication of a book about Benoit Marie Moriceau’s work named “Psycho”.
    The publication theme will be an artwork that he realized last year here in Rennes, France.

    Mr Moriceau would like to make appear images from his preparative researches, and the photo of the Allen House is among them.
    We would like to know who do we have to contact for the copyright matters.

    Thank you in advance for the precious help you may give!

    We are at your convenience for any question you may have in this respect.

    Best regards,

    Maïna Loaec

    I wrote you a while ago about the Allen house picture!
    You were ok to let us publish it…unfortunately, the image quality is not good enough! Could you send me a 300dpi, 5×4 inches image?
    thank you a lot!!!

  7. Hello,
    I live in Holyoke, MA, and am doing some volunteering at the Wisteriahurst Museum, during which I came across your site(s). I love what you have for Holyoke! Thanks!
    I noticed what might be a typo, or maybe just a “copying” of an historical text, that used cusine instead of cuisine. I only write as a possible help, not with any huge concern. Here is the link, the referenced is in the description of the rooftop restaurant. Thanks again.

    Could you tell me the illustrator or source for the map you have in your banner? I love it!! Also, would suggest you add the Town of Belmont to your list – was surprised not to see it. Thanks in advance,
    Katie

    The banner is from a 19th century bird’s-eye-view of North Adams.

    I am looking for information on what is now 700 Main Street in Cambridge (formerly affiliated with various numerals on Osborne St). There is a long history associated with our building, but I’m not sure where to start (after google) to help find additional information on the tenants and events that have been at home in this building in centuries gone by. Any suggestions?
