Boston Neighborhood History Series: Roxbury
March 22, 2012
Originally founded as an independent community, after massive landfill and annexation to Boston, today Roxbury is at the city’s geographical center. Its buildings and landmarks tell the story of three centuries, from its rural beginnings to suburbanization to industry. Thomas Plant, President of the Roxbury Highlands Historical Society, will discuss the history of the neighborhood, which includes the Shirley Eustis House, the only remaining country house in America built by a British Royal Colonial Governor.
