NEGHS moved to its seventh and current headquarters in 1964. The first three floors were built as a branch of the New England Trust Company in 1928, designed by Ralph Coolidge Henry and Henry P. Richmond, successors to noted American architect Guy Lowell. When they moved in, the NEGHS added five floors atop the building.
