The distinguished architectural heritage of Massachusetts ranges across virtually all architectural eras and styles. Bostonian Charles Bulfinch, who developed the Federal style, is famous for the State House building completed in 1798.

Landscape designer Frederick Law Olmsted, credited with helping to create the landscape architecture profession, designed more than 250 parks in Massachusetts in the second half of the 19th century, including the greenbelt known as the Emerald Necklace in Boston.

Typical of some of Massachusetts’s earliest homes are the John Whipple House, in Ipswich; the Parson Barnard House, in North Andover; the Fairbanks House, in Dedham; and the Reverend Lothrop house in Barnstable, where the Sturgis Library is located. Boston’s Harrison Gray Otis House and Salem’s Peirce-Nichols House reflect the affluence of the late 18th century. The standards of the period were set by Samuel McIntire, a Salem architect and woodcarver. A famous architect of 19th-century Boston was Henry Hobson Richardson; Trinity Church is considered his masterpiece. The noted architect Walter Gropius headed Harvard’s school of architecture for 15 years before his retirement in 1952. "Massachusetts" © Emmanuel BUCHOT, Encarta, Wikipedia
