Boston’s Oldest Buildings

July 13, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Goodnow Library in Sudbury MA present Joe Bagley on his new book.

Join us for a book talk on July 13 at 7:00pm!  Joe Bagley, the City Archaeologist of Boston, will be discussing his new book, Boston’s Oldest Buildings and Where to Find Them.  As Boston approaches its four-hundredth anniversary, it is remarkable that it still maintains its historic character despite constant development.

The fifty buildings featured in the book all pre-date 1800 and illustrate Boston’s early history. Geographically, the majority of the buildings are located within the downtown area of Boston along the Freedom Trail and within easy walking distance from the core of the city. The buildings span multiple uses from homes to churches and warehouses to restaurants. Come learn about the buildings and their historical significance, as well as the efforts made to preserve them over time.

CAPACITY: 50 space limit. Registration is required for this event.
