That department houses the Boston Landmarks Commission, the City Archaeology Program and (soon) the Commemoration Commission. Together, they advocate for the environmental, social, and economic benefits of Boston's historic resources.

  • Environmental Benefits of Historic Structures  DId you know that the greenest building is the one that is already built? Learn about why historic structures are green by design.
  • Landmarking  Almost any resource in Boston at least 50 years old can be landmarked, but what does this mean?
  • Archaeology  Found an artifact, archaeological site, or worried a site is at risk? Want to join a dig or visit our Lab? The City’s archaeology team is here to help you with your questions, concerns, or interest in Boston's buried past.
