The JP Historical Society is bringing this tour back by popular demand (since it was last given in 1991!) It will highlight the many women who made history in Jamaica Plain and beyond. Educational reformers, musicologists, scientists, doctors and suffragists — the contributions of these women are enormous and their stories are wonderful. Some names are quite well known (Sylvia Plath) while others are lesser known but no less astounding (Emily Greene Balch). Come along to hear about a collection of really amazing women.
This tour will cover about 2 miles, so please wear sturdy shoes. It will start in Hyde Square and end near the Arboretum! No reservations required just meet the guides at the starting location. We will cancel in the case of heavy rain.
