Jamaica Plain By Map
January 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join the Leventhal Map & Education Center, the JP, Egleston, and Connolly branches of BPL, and the Jamaica Plain Historical Society as we explore the history of Jamaica Plain through online maps.
How old is the Jamaica Plain Branch of the BPL? What was Jamaica Plain like in the late 19th and early 20th centuries? How has the neighborhood changed, and how has it stayed the same? Using Atlascope, the Leventhal Map & Education Center’s user-friendly portal for exploring urban atlases, we’ll dive into the historical geography of Jamaica Plain. Come learn about how the community has changed over time, and discover how to research the history of your own house and neighborhood.
This event will be broadcast online at the Leventhal Map Center’s YouTube Live and Facebook Live channels. Please pre-register for the event here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/jamaica-plain-by-map-tickets-130323748841 in order to receive further event details.
