Notice is hereby given that a public walking tour will be held on Saturday, June 11, 2022, at 11:00AM. The walking tour is free and open to members of the public who wish to attend.


East Cambridge is one of the oldest and most densely settled neighborhoods in the city, with a rich mixture of early- to mid-19th century architectural styles, traversed by a traditional neighborhood shopping street. Trends in Cambridge real estate often increase the pressure for development, which can lead to inappropriate alterations or destruction of significant buildings. Charles Sullivan and Eric Hill of the Cambridge Historical Commission will discuss the current proposal to establish a neighborhood conservation district in the area.


Location: The walking tour will begin at 11:00AM at Gold Star Mothers Park (near the corner Winter and Fifth streets).


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