JPHS Tour of Stony Brook (in English y Español)

September 3 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Jamaica Plain Historical Society Tour of Stony Brook (in English y Español)

Explore a fascinating industrial area at the geographic heart of Boston that includes 19th-century tannery and brewery buildings, the homes of early German settlers, and today’s Boston Beer Company, the brewers of Samuel Adams. In the 1970s, a coalition of community groups joined together to block construction of the Southwest Expressway through Jamaica Plain and other Boston neighborhoods. Today, the Southwest Corridor Park that runs through the Stony Brook neighborhood stands as a testament to the power of community activism.

Explore un área industrial fascinante en el corazón de Boston. Veremos edificios que fueron cutidurías y cervecerías en el siglo XIX, las casas de los primeros colonos alemanes y la Boston Beer Company, la cervecería de Samuel Adams. Hablaremos de la década de 1970, en la que una coalición de grupos comunitarios se unió para bloquear la construcción de la autopista Southwest Expressway que iba a atravesar Jamaica Plain y otros vecindarios de Boston. Y pasearemos por lo que es hoy, el Southwest Corridor Park que atraviesa el vecindario de Stony Brook, un testimonio del poder del activismo comunitario.
