Summer Walking Tours with Dee Morris

Some Exceedingly Capable People of Medford Hillside :

Saturdays, July 18, August 8, September 12 at 10:00 a.m. 

Meet at Wesley United Methodist Church 100 Winthrop Street

“Do you want a home of your own?” was the rallying cry of Leavitt & Woodworth,

two premier real estate agents from Medford Hillside in the early 1900s.

Living in the Chester or Greenleaf Avenue area offered the commuter about 48 street cars or trains to and from Boston. The comfortable homes built on the fine dry soil provided a healthy environment in which to raise a family.  Near to Tufts College, this socially-minded neighborhood loved entertaining by presenting amateur theatricals put on by the “None-Such Comedy Club.” Yet in 1903 the peace was shattered when one of the local girls was shot while walking up her front stairs.  There are many untold stories in this ideal community.

Presented by the Friends of the Medford Public Library.   No registration is necessary for these tours.
