Walking Tour of Jamaica Pond
June 23, 2012
Join the JP Historical Society on a trip around Jamaica Pond. Once a gathering point for Boston’s elite, the Pond had previously been put to industrial use as tons of ice were harvested there each winter. Learn about the movers and shakers such as Francis Parkman who made their homes on the Pond’s shores. Discover how the Pond was transformed from private estates and warehouses into the parkland we know today. Tours are cancelled in case of heavy rain.
