About the Center

The Aldrich Center occupies the first floor of One Walnut Street, also known as the Phillips Winthrop House, which is one of the earliest brick homes on Beacon Street and a shining example of Beacon Hill elegance and charm. Recently refurbished, the Aldrich Center offers a unique blend of history, comfort and technology which makes it an ideal venue for your next business meeting, political function or social event.

The Aldrich Center is operated by The Engineering Center Education Trust (TECET), an educational and charitable nonprofit trust and owner of One Walnut Street. TECET is a collaborative undertaking of three associations – the American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts, the Boston Society of Civil Engineers Section/ASCE and the Massachusetts Association of Land Surveyors and Civil Engineers. The Aldrich Center is named after Dr. Harl Aldrich, Jr., PE, founder of Haley & Aldrich, Inc., Boston, MA, and a principal donor when One Walnut Street was purchased in June of 1990.
