2017 Boston Preservation Month Events

Welcome! Every May, Boston Preservation Month encourages public awareness and appreciation of the City's historic resources.

The National Trust for Historic Preservation created National Preservation Month in 1973. The month highlights historic preservation's importance through events that:

  • celebrate historic places
  • promote heritage tourism, and
  • show the social and economic benefits of historic preservation.

Every year we put together a list of exhibits, walking tours, lectures, and more, related to history. The events are free or low-cost. You can find more information about this year's below.
