Special Walking Tours
Boston and its Changing Landscape
Tickets: $5.00

Join Old North Foundations Tim Sistare for a special walking tour examining the historic development of Bostons ever changing landscape. Trace the evolution of Bostons shoreline and its relationship to the history of the city. Consider contemporary developments like the Big Dig and their impact on modern day Boston. Starting at the Boston Common, meander through downtown from the waterfront at Long Wharf down the Rose Kennedy Greenway to the North End. The tour will conclude at the Old North Church for a discussion of historic changes in the North End neighborhood and place Old North within the context of Bostons evolving landscape. This program is a fun and active opportunity for those interested in exploring the transformation of Bostons physical landscape.

The tour will run approximately 90 minutes in length and cover 1.5 miles on foot, so please dress accordingly.

He also handleseducator payroll and scheduling, assisting with teaching school programs, and writing for and editing our history blog, The Messenger.Youll also find him in the church twice a week giving talks and tours, mentoring our educators, and sharing as much about military history as he can!
