Symphony Hall is a concert hall located at 301 Massachusetts Avenue in Boston, Massachusetts. Designed by McKim, Mead and White, it was built in 1900 for the Boston Symphony Orchestra, which continues to make the hall its home. The hall was designated a U.S. National Historic Landmark in 1999. It was then noted that "Symphony Hall remains, acoustically, among the top three concert halls in the world and is considered the finest in the United States." Symphony Hall, located one block from the New England Conservatory, also serves as home to the Boston Pops Orchestra and the Handel and Haydn Society.
