Existing Conditions and Recommendations Report Emerson College


Founded in 1880 in Boston's Back Bay, Emerson College began as a small school dedicated to the field of oratory. Over the years it has evolved into an internationally recognized college devoted exclusively to the study of communications and the liberal arts. In 1992 due to space constraints and with the goal of creating an urban, residential campus, the College systematically began acquiring eight historically significant, yet underutilized buildings in the Piano Row Historic District next to the Boston Common. With grant support, Emerson will undertake new assessments of the physical conditions of the exteriors of the buildings and prepare a prioritized conservation and maintenance plan for their properties in the historic district.

Emerson College received a Getty grant in 2006 for $200,000 to support campus heritage planning.
