Burns Library was designed in the Gothic Revival style in 1928 by Charles Maginnis of the noted firm of Maginnis and Walsh. The Burns Library, a rare books and special collections library, was the second building completed on Boston College’s Chestnut Hill Campus. The library houses more than 200,000 volumes, 15 million manuscripts and an impressive portfolio of artifacts, maps, paintings, photographs and architectural records.
Phase I restoration work focused on addressing water infiltration. It included comprehensive restoration of the Indiana and Roxbury Puddingstone masonry as well as repairs to the terra cotta tile and copper roofs.
