Boston City Archives Urban Renewal Edit-a-thon

In the 1950s, the urban renewal idea hit Boston and affected many different neighborhoods within the city. The redevelopment of Scollay Square into Government Center, the demolition of much of the West End and significant areas in the South End, Brighton, and Charlestown, as well as sporadic improvements. Additionally, road projects such as the Inner Belt and the Central Artery drastically changed the face of the city. This edit-a-thon will focus on neighborhoods and streets affected, key policy makers, and the effects that lasted throughout the city for many years.

    I am very interested. The meetup is all day long, is everyone just dropping by on their own? I am working on a project for the Dillaway Thomas House and would love to see what they have on Roxbury.

      Please feel free to drop-in any time. There's a welcome and intro planned for the morning, but the City Archives are also ready for and expecting drop-in visitors throughout the day. So please stop by when you can!

    This looks amazing, but my schedule is keeping me in Providence that day. I hope I can go to one soon!
