Home – South End Historical Society

About Us: The South End Historical Society is dedicated to historic preservation and education in Boston’s South End. Through outreach and education, the South End Historical Society promotes the unique history of the neighborhood and work to preserve the South End’s historic buildings.
Living in a Historic District 

The South End is a protected Boston Landmark District. The Landmark District Commission (not the historical society) reviews all proposed changes to the exteriors of South End buildings as well as changes to other elements present in the South End’s built landscape.

If you plan to make changes, do repairs, or in any other way change the exterior of a South End building or other South End elements, please contact the South End Landmark District staff at City Hall. They can be reached at 617-635-3850.
