Massachusetts - Expo Saint-Louis 1904

Massachusetts at the Exhibition Expo Saint-Louis 1904

The Massachusetts Pavilion represents a colonial-style mansion with many features of historical interest, including on its façade a partial reproduction of the Bullfinch façade of the State Capitol, and in its interior, reproductions of the old Massachusetts Senate House and the old House of Representatives, with porches at each end similar to those of the old Longfellow House in Cambridge.

The rooms are furnished with antique furniture, so valuable because of their history.

On the second floor of the main hall is the historic hall, two stories high. This is well stocked with cherished relics and memorabilia from Massachusetts history. The house covers an area of 100 by 70 feet and cost $20,000.
