Sorry for the late notice, but I just found out about this yesterday. On the terrific walk around the Magoun Square area to celebrate Jane Jacobs’ legacy, I was handed a flyer on the May 2012 Preservation Month events around the ‘ville. I’ll transcribe below what I have on that paper, because I can’t seem to find it on the city web site.
Sunday, May 6th: Walking Tour “From Mansions to Mudflats: East Somerville’s Cornucopia of Cultural Treasures”
Edward Gordon, President of the New England Chapter of the Victorian Society of America, will lead this tour of one of the oldest sections of Somerville. Focus will be on the historic homes near Mt. Vernon St., two-families along the “States Avenues”, as well as the changing character and uses within the East Broadway Business District. Sponsored in collaboration with East Somerville Main Streets, the tour begins at 3:30pm, stops at the newly renovated Mudflat Studio/former theatre at 81 Broadway, and concludes ~5:00pm with appetizers provided by local businesses. Rain or shine.
