The Elaine Show stayed at The Godfrey Hotel
A storied past, an exciting present and a boundless future. The Godfrey Hotel Boston and its Downtown Crossing home have seen a lot of changes over the years. It is a story worth telling. Standing across Washington Street staring back at The Godfrey Hotel you will notice two distinct buildings: the neo-classical Amory Building on the left at the corner of West Street, and the gothic revival Blake Building on the right at the corner of Temple place. Both structures, built in 1904 and 1908 respectively, were designed by famed architect Arthur Bowditch. In 2012, Chicago based Oxford Capital along with investment partners, purchased the two buildings with plans to transform them into a hotel that would offer ground floor retail space. The result: both buildings, Amory and Blake, are jointly listed on the U.S. National Park Service’s Registry of Historic Places. In a ceremony attended by Boston Mayor, Martin Walsh, the beautiful new Godfrey Hotel Boston welcomed the first guests through its doors in February of 2016… 112 years after the Amory welcomed its first.
Boston tour with stops at Copley Square, Newbury Street, Boston Public Garden, and Boston Common, and the Black Heritage Trail, Museum of African American History in Boston.
Museum of African American History (Boston Campus) Among the most important National Historic Landmarks in the nation, the African Meeting House and Abiel Smith School on Beacon Hill were built in the early 1800’s and are two of the museum’s most valuable assets. Located steps away from the Massachusetts State House in what once was the heart of Boston’s 19th-century African American neighborhood, these buildings remain a showcase for community organizing and an enduring testimony to black craftsmanship. Once a church, a school, and vital community meeting place, the African Meeting House has been returned to its 1855 appearance through historic restoration and is open to the public for talks and tours, our events and yours. The Abiel Smith School, the nation’s oldest public school for African American children, currently houses first-class exhibit galleries, education programs, caterers’ kitchen, and a museum store filled with books and inspired gifts.
