Free JP Historical Tour hosted by Jamaica Plain Historical Society

They're all summer long! The first one is May 11th at Monument Square in JP:

Monument Square
Tour a residential area that includes a National Historic District. View architecture that spans three centuries; the oldest community theater company in the United States; and an elegant 18th-century mansion that once served as the country’s first military hospital. Learn about the monument that commemorates fallen Civil War soldiers from West Roxbury and about Pauline Agassiz Shaw who established the class that became the model for continuous free kindergarten education. We will visit a house dating to 1716 that once served as a tavern, the Eliot School dating back to 1689, the home of the first woman to graduate from MIT and the First Church Burial Ground.

    A great tour that brought out Jamaica Plain's hidden historical secrets, including famous people that lived there. I'd go on one of those tours again.

    Hi All! We'll plan to meet at the tour starting point: Loring-Greenough House, 12 South St. This is my first experience with the tour, and it looks like they get cancelled if it rains. I'll keep an eye out on the forecast, right now it looks like rain :(
