Explore East Boston on Foot  

Discover East Boston's rich history by exploring the neighborhood of Maverick Square, East Boston's oldest commercial center. Trace its roots back to Noddle's Island and learn how the East Boston Company created a planned community that is today vibrant and diverse. We'll examine the built environment to get a sense of the people and forces that have shaped East Boston over the years, and discuss the crucial role of the waterfront, from its famed shipbuilding industry and extensive port facilities, to its contribution to East Boston's proud immigrant heritage. As we leave the waterfront, we'll take a look at commercial establishments catering to old and new residents alike, as well as current and former municipal facilities like the Theodore Lyman school (recently nominated for the National Register of Historic Places), and the Maverick Marketplace, (recent recipient of a Boston Preservation Alliance Award). As we make our way to the tour's end, we will visit the marvelous new Bremen Street Park.
