The Massachusetts Historical Society holds a world-renowned collection of documents and artifacts vital to the study of American History. ABA’s Master Plan and renovation addressed exterior restoration, renewal of public and historic spaces, and integration of universal access, climate control, security, and infrastructure.
ABA is now engaged in a Master Plan Update, assessing the MHS building for its expanded and more public role as a center for scholarship and public programs. ABA’s new planning work addresses space needs for events and programs, technology integration, public and visitor services, collections capacity and growth, and increased staffing. A civic and historic treasure, MHS will be more welcoming, functional, and nimble, expanding its reach and resources.
