Jamaica Plain Historical Society Tour - Stony Brook

Abt Hall - Jamaica Plain Neighborhood House.

I'll be leading this week's Saturday tour of the Stony Brook neighborhood. We'll start at the Stony Brook Orange Line T station and work our way down to Green street. I'll be talking about the changes in the district, from the time that wolves prowled the forest through the coming of the railroad and the settlement of German immigrants in the area. We'll visit James Michael Curley's church and the old Haffenreffer brewery complex - now the home to Sam Adams beer.

Tour starts at 11:00 AM, weather permitting, and is free. Come by and say hello.


  1. Please note - this tour was September 19th.

  2. This picture brings back many memories of the hours I spent at the Neighborhood House. The building has aged well.

    I wish I could have gone on your tour, but I now live in Seattle. I had German Great-Grandparents who lived on Amory Street and owned a brewery. I also remember the smell of hops in the air.

  3. It is a good posting. I like it. It's pretty much impressive.
