Architectural Heritage Foundation

Founded in 1966, Architectural Heritage Foundation has been blending the fields of historic preservation and real estate development, asset management, and property management for over forty years. By combining a preservationist's vision with a businessman's sensibility, AHF's founder and Chairman Emeritus, Roger Webb, created a new model for urban redevelopment and sustainable historic preservation. AHF's first focus was the Quincy Markets, where our feasibility studies outlined the financial model for the Markets' redevelopment into the acclaimed Faneuil Hall Marketplace complex. Shortly thereafter in 1969, AHF won stewardship of Boston's Old City Hall. Our successful redevelopment of this grande dame structure into a thriving restaurant and office building demonstrated the relevance of adaptive reuse to downtown Boston's future. AHF continues to manage and maintain Old City Hall, safeguarding its historic character for future generations to enjoy. Today, under the leadership of Sean McDonnell, AHF's president since 2000, we have renewed our commitment to revitalizing communities through preservation and integration of their historic structures. While maintaining our longstanding interest in local Boston issues and projects, AHF has expanded its focus to include cities and towns throughout New England. AHF provides a variety of services that support the preservation of our varied historic resources and helps to create positive transformation in our communities. We also offer best practices around facilities and asset management to help maintain and carry forward these resources into the future.
