Welcome to the Lynn Historical Commission

The LYNN HISTORICAL COMMISSION fosters and promotes the identification and preservation of Lynn's significant structures, landmarks, and sites.  The COMMISSION works hand-in-hand with the Lynn Museum and Historical Society and other organizations and agencies.  It is the local commission's mandate to be the local municipal watchdog for the state and federal preservation agencies alerting them to local preservation issues.

The LYNN HISTORICAL COMMISSION invites all interested citizens to suggest sites in the city which may be significant for cataloguing and maintaining.

Some of the COMMISSION's recent responsibilities include:

-Worked with the Massachusetts Historical Commission on oversight of the Walnut Street Pumping Station "Waterworks" project to assure photographic documentation of the building and preservation of structural elements upon demolition of the unsound building 

-Partnered with Massachusetts Historical Commission to define the boundaries of Lynn's Diamond District

-Working to place Lynn's cemeteries on the National Register of Historical Places
