Memories of Moxieland
December 11, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Please join the Jamaica Plain Historical Society for some Moxie! Between 1928 and 1953 the soft drink Moxie was bottled at 74 Heath Street at a plant known as "Moxieland". Augustin Thompson originally created Moxie in Lowell in 1876. At the peak of Moxie’s popularity, it even outsold Coke! It was marketed as a medicine that can “recover brain and nervous exhaustion; loss of manhood, imbecility, and helplessness.”
Hear Merrill Lewis, President of the New England Moxie Congress, speak about the history of Moxie, focusing on the late 1920s to the early 1950s - when Moxieland was in JP.
This event is free and open to the public and Moxie will be served.
The Jamaica Plain News calendar is open to all local organizations and businesses.
