History

The pictures bellow describe the history of Buckingham Apartments.

The original owner/builder of 240 Commonwealth Ave. Rollin H. Allen, was a prominent Massachusetts businessman. He lived at the property for several years with his wife and family. In the 1930s Mr. Allen sold his home to the Boston School of Interior Decoration. The School separated the home into several living spaces for its students while maintaining the integrity of the original decor including the beautiful and ornate plaster ceilings, and hand carved wooden features of the banisters, as well as the many other features we hope you will enjoy while browsing the gallery.

The current owner has maintained the original decor and prized features of the property. It is a labor of love that she hopes you will also appreciate and enjoy upon your visit.
