Designated Property List


WHAT PROPERTIES ARE SUBJECT TO COMMISSION REVIEW?

The Historical Commission maintains a street list of designated historic properties (see list below). This list is also available at the Historical Commission office and the  Inspectional Services Department.

In addition, any structure over 50 years old is subject to the  Demolition Delay Ordinance,   the purpose of which is to provide an opportunity to consider preservation alternatives to demolition.


Check the street listing below to see if your property is designated and subject to review by one of our commissions. Call the Commission office at 617/349-4683 or TTY: (617) 349-6112 for  application  information.

The Designated Property List includes all properties in  historic districts and neighborhood conservation districts,  designated  landmarks,  properties under study for designation as a landmark or neighborhood conservation district, and properties protected by  easements.

All properties on a street are designated, unless otherwise noted.

All applications for Building, Sign, and Mechanical Permits for properties on this list must be reviewed by the Cambridge Historical Commission. All Demolition Permits, regardless of address, must be reviewed by the Cambridge Historical Commission.


The list is organized by alphabetical street address.   Properties in Harvard and Radcliffe Yards are listed by building name.
Scroll down the list or click on the first letter of the street name to jump ahead to that portion of the list.
