Historical Walking Tour

This Sunday, September 27 from 2:00pm – 3:30pm join in a tour of Ashmont Hill. The tour starts at 2pm, leaving from the Peabody Sq clock, Dorchester, MA 02124.

"Explore a wonderful area of Dorchester, a town even older than Boston. Ashmont Hill was the site of several Colonial estates eventually giving way to lovely Victorian homes in this 19th century garden suburb. This incredibly preserved architectural enclave features the Shingle style of Edwin Lewis, the Colonial Revival style of Clarence Blackhall, the Gothic Revival style of Ralph Adams Cram, and the Queen Anne styles of Arthur Vinal and Harrison Henry Atwood. See one of the finest Gothic Revival churches ever built in the United States and the neighborhood that photographer Chansonetta Stanley Emmons, educator Jeremiah Burke, painter Edmund Tarbell, and Mayor John 'Honey Fitz' Fitzgerald and daughter Rose Kennedy once called home."

Cost is $15 for non members, $5 for members.
