With First Republic’s help, we’re educating and inspiring a new generation to keep our nation’s history alive.
Client Since ’14

The Massachusetts Historical Society (MHS) is the first such organization in the United States, dating back to the 18th century. The MHS welcomes the public to form a deeper understanding of American history through its collections and resources. This educational mission stems from a single guiding principle: We need to know our past to create the future we want. When parts of the MHS landmark building required repairs, First Republic was there with a tax-exempt loan to help fund the necessary work. With the support of First Republic, the MHS can focus on bringing history to life — just as it has since 1791.
