Welcome to the
Massachusetts State House!

This story takes you on a tour of one of the oldest and most historic State Houses in our nation. The State House is the workplace of the Governor, Legislature, and constitutional officers. There are always things to see and do there.

P.S. Be sure to look carefully at the many portraits of our former governors in the halls... don’t their eyes seem to follow you as you pass?

Note: Most of the drawings and all of the poetry in this publication were drawn and written by school children who visited the State House.
