Hartwell and Richardson  designed the Exeter Street Theater in the 1880s as the first Spiritualist Temple in Boston.  The building exterior consists of brownstone walls, a slate roof, and copper flashing.  In 1995, a fire severely damaged the theater.  Within twenty-four hours, SGH assessed the damage, developed a stabilization program, and began remedial design.
