About Us

Located two blocks from the State House overlooking the Boston Common, the Aldrich Center is the perfect venue for your next event. This historic setting has meeting rooms for rent that can accommodate private parties, business meetings, and political events.

The Aldrich Center is situated on the first floor of One Walnut Street. Designed in 1804 by Charles Bulfinch, architect of the Massachusetts State House and U.S. Capitol, this historic site is one of the earliest brick homes on Beacon Street. This landmark building was the home of John Phillips, first mayor of Boston, the famous abolitionist Wendell Phillips and Thomas Lindall Winthrop, lieutenant governor of Massachusetts from 1826 to 1832.

Recently refurbished, the Aldrich Center has meeting rooms equipped with wall-mounted monitors accessible through your computer or ours, making them ideal for training programs or corporate meetings. With a main meeting room that can accommodate a variety of setups, Aldrich Center can host private breakfasts, luncheons and dinners, bridal and baby showers, as well as political and business receptions for up to 75.

Contact us at 617/227-5551 to reserve your event. Experience the ambiance of the Aldrich Center – where history and technology meet on Beacon Hill.
