  • Chapter 112 AN ACT DESIGNATING THE OLD SUFFOLK COUNTY COURTHOUSE AS THE JOHN ADAMS COURTHOUSE.

Whereas , The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to designate forthwith the Old Suffolk County Courthouse as the John Adams Courthouse, therefore it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation of the public convenience.


Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:


The portion of the Suffolk county courthouse in Pemberton square known as the Old Courthouse shall be designated and known as the John Adams Courthouse, in honor of John Adams, author of the constitution of the commonwealth and second president of the United States. The division of capital asset management and maintenance shall erect suitable markers bearing the designation in compliance with applicable state standards.

Approved May 14, 2002.
