Be a tourist in your own community! Join us for the kickoff to Somerville’s May Preservation Month—
with a leisurely stroll through historic Magoun Square to explore the neighborhoods of Lowell and Hudson Streets, and end at the new “Highland Avenue Hot Block.”
Residents and business owners, current and former, please come and share your memories, observations, and vision for the future as the area continues to grow and thrive.
Find out how the industrial history of the Square has evolved, with many new residential buildings, small businesses, and creative entrepreneurs.
Learn how public policies and investment have shaped the landscape and housing styles, as seen through the eyes of the people who live and work there.
The walk will end in time to enjoy lunch at a neighborhood eatery and then visit the Somerville Museum, open noon to 5 PM, with a terrific selection of this year’s Somerville Open Studio artwork on display!
