For those in town during the 100th Annual Meeting, the AMS Headquarters at 45 Beacon Street will be open for fifteen-minute tours, led by members of the AMS staff. The AMS is proud to maintain 45 Beacon as a historic building, honoring its origins as the home of the third mayor of Boston, Harrison Gray Otis. Designed by Charles Bulfinch, the house was completed in 1806, and stands as a beautiful example of Federal style architecture. The AMS received the house as a gift in 1958, and has been headquartered there ever since. Please feel free to stop by to learn more about this unique and beloved space.
