Tower Ribbon Cutting

Today The Bostonian Society and the Old State House hosted the Tower Restoration Project Ribbon Cutting. The ceremony marked the first "brick and mortar" project to be completed under the National Park Service's Centennial Initiative. The Centennial Initiative matches government funding with private donations for projects within the National Parks. Attendees included Secretary of the Interior Dirk Kempthorne, Director of the National Park Service Mary Bomar, as well as representatives from the Boston National Historical Park, and representatives from the City of Boston.
