    Walking Tour of Stony Brook Neighborhood, Jamaica Plain

    Presented by at Salem Athenaeum

    July 25, 2009


    Walking Tour of Stony Brook Neighborhood, Jamaica Plain

    Explore a fascinating industrial area at the geographic heart of Boston that includes 19th-century tannery and brewery buildings, the homes of early German settlers, and today's Samuel Adams beer company. In the 1970s, a coalition of community groups joined together to block construction of the Southwest Expressway through Jamaica Plain and other Boston neighborhoods. Today, the Southwest Corridor Park that runs through the Stony Brook neighborhood stands as a testament to the power of community activism. All tours are free and open to the public and are offered on Saturdays at 11:00 a.m. sharp. Tours last approximately one hour and are canceled in case of rain. No reservations are required. Please join us and bring along a friend!
