In honor of Historic New England’s centennial, the Adams Gallery presents The Preservation Movement Then and Now.

The exhibition, organized by Historic New England, traces the history of the preservation movement in New England.

The exhibition also explores how the movement changed from saving historic sites to downtown revitalization, environmental conservation, land and shoreline preservation, and saving not a single building, but whole neighborhoods.

In addition to panels describing the relationship of the Hancock House to the preservation movement, the exhibit employs photographs, artifacts, and online access to Historic New England collections to illustrate the organization’s continuing efforts to make the region’s heritage available and enjoyable to all.
