The Jamaica Plain Historical Society announces the following events in the coming weeks:
JPHS Walking Tours are Coming!
For the 24th year, the Jamaica Plain Historical Society will offer a series of walking tours each Saturday morning at 11:00 a.m. Tours will start on May 11th and the season will run through September. This year, we are excited to be able to offer two tours in Spanish (Hyde Square on July 13th and again on September 14th). We will also bring back the very popular Southwest Corridor Park that premiered in 2015…on Sunday, July 28th at 11:00 a.m.
The 2019 tour schedule is up on our website.
Summer Kitchen Opening In Jamaica Plain, we are lucky to have an intact summer kitchen from the early 19th century within the Loring-Greenough House. Tours will be offered on Saturday, May 11th from 4-6:00 p.m. The summer kitchen and laundry room were added to the main house as part of the construction of the 1811 ell and remain remarkably preserved. New this year: fun kids activities related to the 19th-century kitchen — ice cream making (old-time crank machine!), rug beating, apple peeling, laundry wringing, and more! A reception will be held on the 19th-century farm table with free, delicious refreshments!
