  Massachusetts Historical Commission
  "The continuing presence of historic properties in Massachusetts immeasurably enhances the quality of our lives; they help to establish our sense of place and to define the very character of our communities. To meet the challenge of preserving this important heritage, the Massachusetts Historical Commission (MHC) was established by the legislature in 1963 to identify, evaluate, and protect important historical and archaeological assets of the Commonwealth."
  PreservatiON MASS
  "Founded in 1985, PreservatiON MASS (formerly known as Historic Massachusetts, Inc.) is the only statewide non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the Commonwealth's historic and cultural heritage. Our strength lies in the working partnerships we've forged with people throughout Massachusetts' 351 cities and towns. Our board of directors leadership and professional staff are dedicated to strengthening these partnerships through our focus on preservation advocacy and education."
  Historic New England

It offers a unique opportunity to experience the lives and stories of New Englanders through their homes and possessions."
