Join the Jamaica Plain Historical Society to walk around the 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.

Please note: tours will be given based on the current COVID 19 directives from the City of Boston and the Commonwealth. Please wear a mask and follow all required actions.

All JPHS tours are free to the public. Our tours are canceled in case of heavy rain. No reservations are required, just meet the guide at the location listed. You can pre-register for tours using this form (if you wish): https://forms.gle/sQgCQAitA5eEb8RA7
