In addition to the Boston Township Hall, well-known Cleveland architect John Eisenmann designed
many prominent buildings, including the Cleveland
Arcade. Eisenmann was also the first professor of
civil engineering at the Case School of Applied
Science and wrote Cleveland's first building code.
Eisenmann was paid $140 for his drawings for this
school building, which was built for $4,000. Later in
life, Eisenmann designed the state flag for Ohio,
adopted in 1902. He was also a major advocate for
the construction of the Perry's Victory and International Peace Memorial at Put-In-Bay, opened in 1915.

Boston Township Hall. In 1887, John Eisenmann designed this stick-style building for the Peninsula Board of Education so that it could consolidate two one-room school houses. The Peninsula and the Boston Township Boards of Education merged in 1919. The brick addition, designed by architects Harpster and Bliss, was built in 1920. The trustees of Boston Township purchased this property in 1939 from the Board of Education. Union Grange #2380 occupied the first floor for nearly 50 years. The non-profit Boston Township Hall Committee, Inc. was formed in 1990 to work with the township trustees to restore the building.
