Event description

Description

During the Victorian era, the Back Bay was completely transformed, from a polluted salt marsh to the Grande Dame of Boston’s neighborhoods. Join us to trace the social and civil engineering of the Back Bay project by strolling from Boston’s colonial coastline at the foot of Boston Common to the heart of the “new” neighborhood in Copley Square. This two hour tour uses period maps and photos to illuminate the geography, immigration patterns, and technological advances that explain the history of the Back Bay.

Your guide will be Jake Sconyers, host of the Boston history podcast HUB History and former Back Bay tour guide. Meet the group at 10am inside the gate of Boston Common at the corner of Beacon and Charles Streets.
