Introduction

This project traces the history of 45 Mount Vernon Street, the first home of Suffolk University on the top of Beacon Hill, from 1630 to 2015.  In this almost 400 year period, the site has changed from ___________ to ___________________, with dozens of twists and turns in between.  This exhibit will document the changes as witnessed by the historical record.  Because the records are incomplete, some of the missing data will be filled in speculatively by using visual and written material that describe its companion building, 47 Mount Vernon, and other similar sites and buildings.
