Preserving Boston's History tour

The August tour of the month explores buildings and places where historic preservation has prevailed (and some where it has not). Explore the story behind the survival and destruction of some of Boston's most beloved historic landmarks. Join us as we learn about the loss of the John Hancock House, the dramatic rescue of Old South Meeting House and the issues surrounding the fate of the Filene's building. We will discuss the pivotal part Boston played in the development of the Historic Preservation movement and the role of preservation in a vibrant modern city.

Tour cost is $15 (or $5 if you are a card-carrying Boston By Foot member - click here for membership details)

    An interesting tour but I found it overlapped a lot with regular BBF tours - especially Heart of the Freedom Trail. I expect Tours of the Month to be more off the beaten path.

    Meetup people can look for me, amy! I'll be wearing both a Meetup logo button and a BBF button with my name on it. I'll make sure all Meetup people are on the same tour together.
