Walking Tour of Stony Brook
May 24, 2014 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
An event every 7 weeks that begins at 11:00am on Saturday, repeating until August 30, 2014
Join the Jamaica Plain Historical Society to 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. Visit www.jphs.org for more information.
The Jamaica Plain News calendar is open to all local organizations and businesses.
