Boston, MA - Dorothy may have followed a yellow brick road to the Emerald City, but tourists and locals in Boston have been seeing red-the red brick line that marks the Freedom Trail -for over 50 years. But there is so much more to Boston than what is confined along that brick path. Now, one of Boston's most famous historic sites-Old South Meeting House-presents a nine-part, noontime lecture series looking beyond the Freedom Trail to discover some of the diverse communities that make up the city of Boston.
On Thursdays in February and March, Old South Meeting House presents their Middays at theMeeting House lunchtime series "Building Beantown: Exploring the Neighborhoods that Make up the 'Hub.'" The series is co-sponsored by Historic Boston Incorporated and Boston Landmarks Commission and will provide insight into eight of the city's unique neighborhoods, examining how they developed and became distinct communities. Programs will explore Dorchester, Roslindale, the South End, South Boston, Jamaica Plain, Chinatown, Roxbury, and Charlestown.
The audience is welcome to bring a brown bag lunch; admission to the programs is included with Museum admission and is free to Old South Meeting House museum members.
