Fifth Annual Open Archives Tour:
Spaces: Sacred and Profane
The Cambridge Historical Commission
Sketch by William L. Galvin for façade Cambridge Federal Savings & Loan at 38 Brattle Street, from the collection of the Cambridge Historical Commission.
The Cambridge Historical Commission, a department of the City of Cambridge, was established in 1963 to administer the city’s historic districts, to survey Cambridge’s architecture and publish its findings, and to research and mark historic sites. Since then, its mission has expanded. The Commission maintains a public archive of the city’s architectural and social history; staff members present informational and educational programs to local schools, organizations, and community groups.
