December 31, 2022 Eight New Landmarks for Boston in 2022
A year’s end, the City of Boston’s newly created Office of Historic Preservation announced that the Boston Landmarks Commission designated eight new Boston Landmarks in 2022, including a new local historic district, the Highland Park Architectural Conservation District in Roxbury. These are the most historic properties to be so designated in a single year since 1983.
More than 8000 sites in Boston are either individual Landmarks or sit within a Landmark or Architectural Conservation District. The designation of “Landmark” permanently protects places with high architectural or historical significance from changes that could compromise their integrity. Any physical changes by future owners must be reviewed and approved by the Landmarks Commission.
In 2022, the eight historic places that were designated Landmarks are as follows:
Blessed Sacrament Church Complex, Hyde Square, Jamaica Plain
Bond-Hampton House, Highland Park, Roxbury
Howe-Kingsley House, Dorchester
Mount Calvary Church/Otisfield Street Synagogue, Dorchester
Tileston House, Dorchester Lower Mills
Warren House, Roxbury
Ayer Mansion Interior, Back Bay
