    In conjunction with JP Open Studios the JP Historical Society invites you to explore the Green Street area of Jamaica Plain. Our historical walking tour will also take in some of the open artists' studios along the route. Laid out in 1836, Green Street played a key role in Jamaica Plain’s development, functioning as a residential, commercial, and transportation conduit in the lives of the district’s residents. Although Green Street was subdivided as early as 1851 for stores, factories and houses it was not extensively developed until the late 1870’s with construction continuing until the early 1900’s. The Bowditch School was completed in 1892 and early in the 20th century the United States Post Office moved from its location on Call Street at Woolsey Square to its new location at the corner of Green and Cheshire Streets.
