This year, the Boston Landmarks Commission designated eight new spots as official city landmarks — the largest amount of designations in one year since 1983.

Without further ado, let’s meet a few of the historic spots that earned this title in 2022.

Warren House

This memorial structure was built by descendants of Dr. Joseph Warren, the namesake of Warren Tavern who drafted a document that is believed to have influenced the Declaration of Independence. The building is constructed entirely from Roxbury puddingstone, the state rock of Massachusetts.

Ayer Mansion Interior

The last surviving residential commission by Louis Comfort Tiffany, this Back Bay marvel is the only known use of the craftsman’s exterior stone mosaics.

Highland Park

ICYMI, this Roxbury area earned landmark status as an Architectural Conservation District this summer, making it Boston’s first protected historic district in over a decade.
