Our fellow archivists at the Cambridge Historical Commission have just launched a new blog.  On it you will find highlights from collections, staff and researcher favorites, and stories about Cambridge history.

One of our favorites is a post about the Cambridge Historical Commission Architectural Survey File.  The Commission has a file on every address in the city, a resource that is unique in New England and perhaps in America.  Between 1964 and 1977, the Commission surveyed and photographed every building in Cambridge.  These files contain architectural survey forms, photographs, newspaper clippings and anything of interest relating to the current building or demolished building on the site.  These survey files are a priceless resource.  We often send patrons to the Commission to search these files and soon they will be available online.
