*FULL* Boston By Bulfinch

This event is now *FULL*, please check the calendar for upcoming events.

Known as America’s first architect, Charles Bulfinch (1763-1844) defined the Federal style of architecture and the physical fabric of Boston, capturing the vision and spirit of the young Republic. As an architect, town planner, and selectman, Bulfinch designed some of the city’s most enduring buildings, including iconic Beacon Hill mansions and the area now known as the Bulfinch Triangle near the Boston’s TD Garden. Join the BSA Foundation and Boston By Foot for an exploration of some of his greatest works, including the Massachusetts State House, the sites of Boston’s first theater and first Catholic cathedral, and the Tontine Crescent—his architectural masterpiece and ultimately his financial ruin.

This is a program of the BSA Foundation in partnership with Boston by Foot.

Boston By Foot promotes public awareness and appreciation of Boston’s rich history and architectural heritage by offering a wide range of guided tour tours and programs.
