Walking Tour of Roxbury's Mount Pleasant  

Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983, Roxbury's Moreland Street Historic District (also known as Mount Pleasant) is significant for its distinguished architecture. The area is known for its styles and residential building types prevailing in the Boston area from 1840 to the 1920s, for the evolution of its urban/suburban plan, as an important example of Boston's "streetcar suburb" development, and for its associations, including General Joseph Warren, Admiral John A. Winslow, a Civil War hero, authors Hamlin Garland and Epes Sargent and Mayor James Michael Curley. The tour will also highlight educational, charitable, and religious sites, including the former site of Roxbury Latin School, Roxbury's oldest public school, and the Carmelite Monastery.
