Images of Governors of Massachusetts, 1629-1894

The State Library has recently digitized over fifty images of governors of Massachusetts between the years 1629 and 1894. The collection, known as Picture 1-55, includes an image of the Province House, the official residence of royal governors of the Province of Massachusetts, and one image each of the Old State House and the "New" State House (1798), where the State Library is located. These images are available on the Library’s Flickrpage.

Sincere thanks to Special Collections Department intern Kate Boutin, who scanned and described the images in this collection.
