Eight New Landmarks for Boston in 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

Highland Park Architectural Conservation District, Roxbury
