Notice is hereby given that a public walking tour will be held on Saturday, June 4, 2022, at 11:00AM. The walking tour is free and open to members of the public who wish to attend. The tour will provide an overview of the history and architecture of one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city, East Cambridge.


East Cambridge was developed in the late 18th century by Andrew Craigie, a land speculator, who convinced Middlesex County to build its new courthouse not in Old Cambridge, but in East Cambridge. The tour will be led by the architectural historian Susan Maycock, the author of Survey of Architectural History: East Cambridge (1988) and co-author of Building Old Cambridge (2016).


Location: The walking tour will begin at 11:00AM at Centanni Park (near the corner of Otis and Third Streets).


Questions regarding the tour may be sent to Eric Hill at ehill@cambridgema.gov or by phone at 617- 349-4683.
