Walking Tour:"Remnants of Urban Renewal "

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012,6:30pm-8:00pm

@ West End Museum

Cost: FREE

The term 'urban renewal' has become synonymous with Boston's West End. In the late 1950's and early 1960's, more than 50-acres of tenement housing was demolished under the process of 'slum clearance' to make way for luxury high-rise buildings; over 10,000 low to middle income residents were relocated.


Some key architectural buildings were left intact, as was the north slope of Beacon Hill which for hundreds of years was known as West Boston and later the West End.
This tour will focus on some notable remaining buildings north of Cambridge Street and their significance to the people of the West End over the last 200 - years. Support materials will be handed out.The tour will begin at the West End Museum and end at the Otis House on Cambridge Street


Duane Lucia, executive director of the West End Museum will lead the tour.
