Walking Tour of Jamaica Pond

September 24, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm


Join the Jamaica Plain Historical Society on a tour around the Jamaica Pond. Once a district that only included the houses of Boston’s elite, the Pond later was put to industrial use as tons of ice were harvested there each winter. Learn about the movers and shakers such as Francis Parkman and James Michael Curley 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.
All tours are free to the public and are offered on dates shown. Tours last 90 minutes and are canceled in case of heavy rain. No reservations are required, just meet the guide at the location listed. A map showing the starting points of the walking tours can be found on our website.

The Jamaica Plain News calendar is open to all local organizations and businesses.
