Details of Massachusetts State Exposition Building

Overview of Massachusetts State Exposition Building

Constructed by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in 1918, the Massachusetts State Exposition Building was the first of the six New England state buildings to be built on the Eastern States Exposition fairgrounds. Architect James H. Ritchie was hired to design an almost perfect replica of the old Massachusetts Statehouse, the oldest surviving public building in Boston. The building was dedicated in 1919 by then Governor Calvin Coolidge.

Today the building is used to showcase Massachusetts agriculture, industry and tourism at New England's largest fair, The Big E. The fair runs for 17 days every September and attracts 1.5 million visitors.
