Walking Tour of Woodbourne, Jamaica Plain

Saturday, Aug 3, 2013 11:00a
Bethel AME Church Boston, MA

This neighborhood developed from 19th-century summer estates into a model suburban enclave. It contains examples representative of New England architecture with designs by local architects and builders. It also contains an unusual garden city model housing development by the Boston Dwelling House Company which was founded in 1912. This group of progressives laid out the winding streets to create a lovely space for city dwellers to escape to "for the price of the 5 cent fare" to Forest Hills.
