Jamaica Pond Bandstand
Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts 02130
Join the Jamaica Plain Historical Society for our final tour of the 2019 season, a walk around Jamaica Pond. Once a district that only included the houses of Boston’s elite, the Pond later was put to industrial use as tons of ice were harvested there each winter. Learn about the movers and shakers such as Francis Parkman and James Michael Curley who made their homes on the Pond’s shores. Discover how the Pond was transformed from private estates and warehouses into the parkland we know today.
Tour last 90 minutes and will be canceled in the case of heavy rain. No reservations are required, just meet the guide at the location listed.
