Boston Corporation was formed in 1545 and lasted until 31 March 1974.

These arms were granted to the Corporation on 1 December 1568.

The three crowns are thought to refer to the town's medieval links with Cologne, and the woolsack reflects the town's early prosperity based on the wool trade.

The Sessions House was built between 1841 and 1842 to designs by Charles Kirk who was also responsible for the near identical Sessions House in Spalding (completed in 1843).

The new building accommodated the sittings of the Quarter Sessions and the Kirton and Skirbeck Bench.

It has been subject to very few alterations, most of which have been carried out in the custody and service areas located to the rear of the ground floor.

The Sessions House ceased to be used as a Magistrates Court in 2003.
