United States House of Representatives

1789 to 1793: 8 seats

Article I of the United States Constitution allocated 8 seats to Massachusetts.

1793 to 1803: 14 seats

After the 1790 Census, Massachusetts gained three seats.

In the third Congress only, there were plural districts in which more than one member would be elected from the same district and there was also an at-large seat. After that Congress, however, there would be no at-large seats and no plural seats.

1803 to 1813: 17 seats

After the 1800 Census, Massachusetts gained three seats.

1813 to 1833: 20 seats, then 13

After the 1810 Census, Massachusetts gained three seats to grow to its largest apportionment (so far). In 1820/21, however, seven of those seats were lost to the new state of Maine.

After the 1820 Census, Massachusetts kept its remaining 13 seats without change.
