Lyn Hovey Studio/All Saints Church| 6:00 p.m.
Join the Alliance for a construction tour of a preservation work-in-progress! The tour begins at the Lyn Hovey Stained Glass Studio in Dorchester where we will learn how the historic stained glass from the Parish All Saints is being restored. Then we will walk over to the Parish of All Saints, Ashmont to tour the preservation work currently in progress to keep this 1893 structure of Quincy granite and Nova Scotia limestone looking its best and serving its parish. Light refreshments and an opportunity to ask questions will be provided after the tour.
Meet at the Lyn Hovey Studio, 57 Southern Avenue in Dorchester. Street parking is available and both sites are walking distance from the Ashmont and Shawmut Stations on the Red Line. Parking is also available at All Saints, where the tour will conclude.
This tour is free and open to the public but space is limited. Register to reserve your place on the tour!

The Liberty Hotel| 6:00 p.m.
Go to jail. Go directly to jail... preferably the Charles Street jail which has been beautifully rehabilitated into the stunning, vibrant Liberty Hotel. Book yourself in for the evening and enjoy the freedom to eat, drink, and steal a deal on our best auction items! Take a ride on the Red Line and you will find the Liberty Hotel is just steps away from the Charles/MGH station. Do not pass this opportunity to socialize with your preservation and development peers, see a luxuriously restored and fascinating space, and support the ongoing mission of Boston's leading advocate for historic preservation.

Old South Meeting House | 6:30 p.m.
The Boston Preservation Alliance and the Old South Meeting House partner to present author Anthony Sammarco's presentation of his new book, Lost Boston. Sammarco will take guests on a nostalgic and eye-opening journey to the wide-range of places in Boston that have been lost over the years; places like the original Museum of Fine Arts in Copley Square, John Hancock's Beacon Hill mansion, the Huntington Avenue Grounds, and the original Boston Opera House. Barely escaping this list itself is the venue for this event, the Old South Meeting House, which was once auctioned off for the value of its parts and was being dismantled when the people rallied to save it! Join us as we learn more about the historic places of Boston and why it is as important today as ever to value and preserve these important places.
Old South Meeting House: 310 Washington Street at the intersection with Milk Street.
This event is free and open to the public. No RSVP required. Contact Erica Lindamood with questions.
Boston Convention & Exhibition Center| Hall C
ArchitectureBoston Expo (ABX) is one of the largest events for the design and construction industry in the country, and the largest regional conference and tradeshow. Drawing 92% of its attendance from New England, ABX’s regional reach is its greatest strength. Attendees hold on to their money (no airline fees, hotel costs or meal expenses) and spend their time building relationships and networks around physical proximity and the likelihood of follow-up work. The building industry varies dramatically from region-to-region due to issues of climate, geography, politics and economics. ABX and the Boston Society of Architects help build long-term relationships around these shared experiences and challenges.
The ABX call for workshop proposals is open until March 3. Both introductory and advanced topics are encouraged. Get more information here.
Find the Alliance booth at the Exhibit Hall to talk to staff, learn more about what we do, and pick up materials about the organization and preservation in Boston.
