In 1718 the Massachusetts General Court opened a quarantine hospital on Spectacle Island, beginning the centuries long use of the Boston Harbor Islands as quarantine spaces. This virtual program presented in partnership with The National Park Service explores the history of the islands’ use by Boston city officials in an effort to combat deadly diseases.
