Join the Jamaica Plain Historical Society on a walk 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 JPHS tours last between 60 and 90 minutes and are canceled in case of heavy rain. No reservations are required, just meet the guide at the location listed. You can pre-register from a link on our website (if you would like).
Please note: tours will be given based on the COVID 19 directives from the City of Boston and the Commonwealth. Please wear a mask and follow all required actions.
