MCFF Grant for the Longyear Museum - February 17, 2015

The Massachusetts Cultural Council has awarded Wolf Architects' client, the Longyear Museum, a $500,000 matching grant for restoration, accessibility and systems upgrades at 400 Beacon Street in Newton.  Originally designed in 1880 by Peabody & Stearns, this substantial structure was then renovated and expanded by Chicago architect Solon Beman in 1907-08 for Mary Baker Eddy, who founded the Christian Science Monitor while living here.

Gary Wolf AIA previously designed two rounds of exterior repairs for the museum, and Wolf Architects is currently planning the next phase of work, which will be supported by this Massachusetts Cultural Facilities Fund grant.
