The Bostonian Society presents Through the Keyhole, an all-new exhibition at the Old State House exploring how the objects we preserve shape the stories we remember.

For the first time in decades, the front door of the Hancock House, John Hancock’s Beacon Hill home, will be displayed to the public, newly set in a meticulous recreation of its original surrounding entryway crafted by students from the Preservation Carpentry program at North Bennet Street School.

The exhibit will also feature additional items from The Bostonian Society’s collection, which relate to the Hancock home and its inhabitants, including oil paintings, the Hancock family bible, and wooden mementos made from the timbers of the original house.

Through the Keyhole will run from June 20 - December 28, 2018 at the Old State House, 206 Washington Street, Boston, MA, 02109.

Open 7 days a week from 9-5; from Memorial Day through Labor Day open 9-6.

The public can preview the exhibition starting on Sunday, June 3rd.
