Grant to Restore McKim Facade

The Boston Public Library Fund received a generous grant from the Ruby W. and LaVon P. Linn Foundation for the repair and restoration project of the three limestone reliefs that adorn the façade of the McKim Building. 

Crafted by the renowned sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens in 1895, these reliefs depict the seals of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the Boston Public Library, and the City of Boston. Now, this important and timely restoration project will ensure that these seals are enduring symbols of Boston’s legacy for generations to come.
