Neighborhood: South End

The Tubman House is a landmark at the corner of Massachusetts and Columbus Avenues. It was the first major commission for Don Stull – then, one of only a dozen African-American architects in the nation – who won awards with the Tubman House and went on to design Boston’s award-winning Ruggles Street subway station and the new police department headquarters.

The building comprises a multi-level, open floor plan filled with natural light from skylights and large floor-to-ceiling windows. Its external walls on Columbus Avenue and Massachusetts Avenue are decorated with a mural depicting the ethnically diverse history of the past 100 years in the South End.
