Join the JP Historical Society to journey around the Jamaica Pond. Once a district that only included the houses of Boston’s elite, the Pond later was put to industrial use as tons of ice were harvested there each winter. Learn about the movers and shakers such as Francis Parkman and James Michael Curley who made their homes on the Pond’s shores. Discover how two women, Emily Greene Balch and Pauline Agassiz Shaw, who lived here changed the world. Hear how the Pond was transformed from private estates and warehouses into the parkland we know today. For more information visit www.jphs.org
