Remember the Ladies: Historical Walking Tour of Brookline  

Walk in the footsteps of Angelina Grimke, Susanna Boylston Adams, and other amazing women who made history in Brookline, and learn about what life was like for women in the earlier years of our town's history. Places of interest and people will include the Old Burying Ground at Brookline Cemetery, where we’ll talk about colonial family life and pay a visit to Susanna Boylston Adams, mother of John Adams. We will see an Underground Railway safehouse, which hosted many guests including Ellen Craft, who disguised herself as a white male slave owner in order to escape to freedom with her husband, who posed as her slave, and Angelina Grimke, who became the first woman to address an American legislative body when she spoke on abolitionism at the Massachusetts State House.
Our tour will end at the First Parish Church on Walnut Street where we’ll observe the stained glass windows and learn about the fiery artist and illustrator Sarah Wyman Whitman and her famous friends Isabella Stewart Gardner, Sarah Orne Jewett, and Amy Lowell. Expect to walk one mile. Please wear comfortable shoes.
