Cost: Free

Join the Jamaica Plain Historical Society to 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 Boston Beer Company, the brewers of Samuel Adams. 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.

Please note: the tour will be offered in both English and Spanish.  Nota: este tour también se dará en español.

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.
