Learn the history of Jewish Boston with guided walking tours in partnership with Boston by Foot. Meeting place will be provided after registration. Tours are typically 90 minutes. Please wear comfortable shoes. Tours are rain or shine.
In the late 1950s and early 1960s, two Boston neighborhoods were razed: Scollay Square and the West End. Scollay Square was Boston’s seedy entertainment district. The West End was once a vibrant immigrant neighborhood that was demolished during Boston’s era of urban renewal. Come walk through these areas, see what buildings remain and hear stories of what happened both to and in these parts of Boston. Hear how these areas developed, who lived there and why they no longer exist.
Please note that this is not a Jewish-specific tour but involves Jewish history since much of the content involving the West End and Scollay Square is intertwined with Jewish history.+ More... - Less...
