Mass Ave History
Alison Barnet, more interested in people than architecture, will share stories and begin to familiarize us with the rich history along Mass Ave. Much of tonight’s talk is drawn from Once Upon A Neighborhood: A Timeline and Anecdotal History of the South End of Boston. Her most recent book is South End Incident, the story of her life in the South End in the 60s. She also published a collection of her columns published in the South End News, South End Character. Interested in her bio? Check out this fun piece on the Athenaeum’s website.
