Significance: Construction of Massachusetts Hall was begun in 1798 under the direction of Samuel and Aaron Melcher and possibly others. It was completed in 1803. When Bowdoin opened in 1802 this building was occupied by the new students and by President Joseph McKeen and his family. The structure was extensively remodeled in 1873 to house the collections of Parker Cleaveland. In 1936, extensive changes of both the interior and exterior occurred under the direction of Felix A. Burton, architect, of Boston.
