We know BHS members are well-schooled in Boston history. So stay comfortable in your slippers (or kick off your shoes and relax) while you venture into uncommon spaces, led by a select group of Boston By Foot docents. These experienced guides researched, authored and conducted special made-to-order tours that they now have adapted for this seminar, comprising five “Boston Uncommon” topics, translated from walking to virtual, and presented by the original authors and collaborators. They will guide you through some of the less-heralded parts of Boston and its history.
This bespoke group of docents will tell their stories—of the Great Fire of 1872; Boston’s Opera History; Art Deco architecture in Boston; Bay Village’s lesser known history—and guide you on a journey through our burying grounds and customs, Grave Undertakings, indeed. Please join us on our uncommon quest, setting out on Thursday afternoons this fall.
