Bulfinch, Benjamin, Parris, and Bryant: A lineage of West End Architecture

Follow us on a walking tour through 50 years of architectural development in the West End, from 1796 through 1851.

When the West End was torn down and redeveloped as part of urban renewal in the late 1950s, a number of historically significant buildings were preserved. These buildings represent a lineage of early Boston architects: Charles Bulfinch, Asher Benjamin, Alexander Parris, and Gridley J.F. Bryant.
