Boston and its Changing Landscape
Join Old North Foundation’s Tim Sistare for a special walking tour examining the historic development of Boston’s ever changing landscape. Trace the evolution of Boston’s shoreline and its relationship to the history of the city. Consider contemporary developments like the Big Dig and their impact on modern day Boston. Starting at the Boston Common, meander through downtown from the waterfront at Long Wharf down the Rose Kennedy Greenway to the North End. The tour will conclude at the Old North Church for a discussion of historic changes in the North End neighborhood and place Old North within the context of Boston’s evolving landscape. This program is a fun and active opportunity for those interested in exploring the transformation of Boston’s physical landscape.
The tour will run approximately 90 minutes in length and cover 1.5 miles on foot, so please dress accordingly.
Tim Sistare manages Old North’s tour reservations and visitor donations and explores ways to enhance the visitor experience. He also handles educator payroll and scheduling, assisting with teaching school programs, and writing for and editing our history blog, The Messenger. You’ll also find him in the church twice a week giving talks and tours, mentoring our educators, and sharing as much about military history as he can! Previously, Tim served as an Educational Interpreter at the Higgins Armory Museum and as an office assistant for a busy local company. Tim is a graduate of Clark University where he received his BA and MA in History and captained the swim team.
