Site Information and Disclaimer
The Massachusetts Cultural Resource Information System (MACRIS) Information available on historic properties through this search system is derived from the Massachusetts Cultural Resource Information System (MACRIS).
MACRIS data are compiled from a variety of records and files maintained by the Massachusetts Historical Commission (MHC), including but not limited to, the Inventory of Historic Assets of the Commonwealth, National Register of Historic Places nominations, State Register of Historic Places listings, and local historic district study reports.
The MACRIS database is highly dynamic; new information is added daily. Information from MACRIS used by this search system is updated on a weekly basis. Users should understand that there may be a considerable lag time from the time of receipt of new or updated records by MHC to the appearance of related information in the database.
This search system includes no information on archaeological sites.
As noted, this search system includes only information derived from MHC files. Many additional Massachusetts historic properties exist, for which information is not presently on file in the MHC records used to compile the MACRIS database.
Data in the MACRIS files is transcribed, interpreted or classified from information in MHC files. MHC does not guarantee the accuracy of the source material, or of the MACRIS data as it appears through this search system.
Data available here is for information purposes only. THE ACT OF CHECKING THIS DATABASE DOES NOT SUBSTITUTE FOR COMPLIANCE WITH APPLICABLE LOCAL, STATE OR FEDERAL LAWS AND REGULATIONS. IF YOU ARE REPRESENTING A DEVELOPER AND/OR A PROPOSED PROJECT THAT WILL REQUIRE A PERMIT, LICENSE OR FUNDING FROM ANY STATE OR FEDERAL AGENCY YOU MUST SUBMIT A PROJECT NOTIFICATION FORM TO MHC FOR MHC’S REVIEW AND COMMENT. You can obtain a copy of a PNF through the MHC web site (www.sec.state.ma.us/mhc/mhcidx.htm) under the subject heading "MHC Forms."
