The Massachusetts State Senate Chamber remains unchanged today from the configuration it had in 1872. There are forty total senators, one of whom, the President, is elected by his peers. The senators were seated, then as now, in order of seniority. Above the President rose, then as now, a statue of George Washington. Prominent among this group is George Sheldon, (#12, Left), founder of the Pocumtuck Valley Memorial Association.
