The Massachusetts Historical Commission meets on the second Wednesday of each month (except May, July, and August) to discuss and vote on nominations to the National Register of Historic Places as well as other preservation issues depending on the agenda for that month.
This is a list of the recent press releases by Secretary Galvin on topics relating to the objectives and interests of the Massachusettes Historical Commission
Begun in 1992 as Archaeology Week, Massachusetts Archaeology Month is a month-long celebration of archaeology in Massachusetts and around the world. Museums, libraries, archaeologists, and many more people and institutions join Secretary Galvin and the State Archaeologist in hosting exhibits, lectures, walks, and events for adults, children, and teachers.
In recognition of the challenge of preserving our national legacy, the Massachusetts Historical Commission (MHC) founded the Preservation Awards program. Awards are presented annually to preservation projects or individuals displaying an outstanding commitment to historic preservation in Massachusetts. Nominations must be for projects completed in 2016, 2017, 2018, or 2019.
