Special Walking Tour: Boston and its Changing Landscape
Join Old North Church & Historic Site 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 Old State House, meander down State St. to the waterfront at Long Wharf and then continue down the Rose Kennedy Greenway to the North End. The tour will conclude at the Old North Church & Historic Site 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 occupation of space.
