JPHS Walking Tour of Woodbourne
August 6, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
This neighborhood developed from 19th-century summer estates into a model suburban enclave. It contains examples representative of New England architecture with designs by local architects and builders. It also contains an unusual garden city model housing development by the Boston Dwelling House Company which was founded in 1912.
