Stephen Puleo: Dark Tide, Jan. 29

On January 29, at 2:00 p.m. Stephen Puleo, author of Dark Tide, will discuss the historic Great Molasses Flood that ravaged the city of Boston on January 15, 1919. A very notable event in Boston's history, a 50-foot tall steel tank filled with 2.3 million gallons of molasses collapsed on Boston's waterfront. The flood demolished homes, and even a brick fire station! The flood ultimately killed 21 and injured 150, and became an unforgettable interest of historians and Bostonians for decades to come. The Dorchester Historical Society is located at 195 Boston Street. For more information about the Dorchester Historical Society, please visit their website!
