This imposing 1970s -era building stands across the street from the State House and is home to the lion's share of the State's agencies and departments. The McCormack's severe facade stands in stark contrast to the charming brick row homes on Beacon Hill, but the building's design is an appropriate indication of its functional purpose.
Visitors can walk in the lobby but should expect to pass through metal detectors and an ID check before going any further. Within its 22 stories, the McCormack Building houses the following State government offices:
The Secretary of the Commonwealth
The Attorney General
Office of the State Auditor
Abandoned Property (Department of Treasury)
State Retirement Board (Department of Treasury)
Veterans' Bonus (Department of Treasury)
Executive Office of Consumer Affairs
Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development
Executive Office of Elder Affairs
Massachusetts Public Records
Massachusetts Department of Higher Education
Massachusetts State Lottery
Executive Office of Public Safety
Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination
