Upham's Corner Walk: Boston Crossroads  

Upham's Corner is one of the oldest crossroads in Boston. Join us while we explore this interesting section of Dorchester, and learn how infrastructure and commerce of the past drove the neighborhood to what it is today. We will walk up a piece of the Emerald Necklace that did not get built (Columbia Road) and find out why not. We will see a series of commercial buildings and discuss why Amos Upham came to this intersection to open his store in 1804.You'll see both the oldest surviving thing in Dorchester, the North Burying Ground, as well as talk about some exciting future plans for Upham's in the Imagine Boston 2030 plan. This tour is presented in partnership with Upham's Corner Main Street, an organization whose mission is to improve quality of life in the Upham's Corner business district by helping neighborhood businesses thrive.
