Historic Preservation Month Comes to Fort Point In May

May is National Historic Preservation month. Boston is celebrating the month with a look at the city's buildings and grounds. The Boston Landmarks Commission will be giving tours, talks and promoting other activities throughout the City including a walking tour of the Fort Point Channel Historical District and Fort Point Spring Open Studios. 


Tuesday May 6, 2014 
5:00 to 6:30 PM | WALKING TOUR
A Lofty Renaissance

Reinvestment in Boston’s only intact warehouse district has in recent years transformed the area into a vibrant and pedestrian friendly mixed-use neighborhood. How did an area dedicated to industry become such a desirable neighborhood in which to live and work? This walking tour will look more closely at how new construction, adaptive reuse, and revitalization of open spaces have allowed Fort Point Channel to live on beyond its industrial past – and how the neighborhood’s status as a historic district has supported this change. This tour will be led by City of Boston Preservation Planner Erin Doherty. Following the tour, continue the conversation over a pint at an informal gathering in one of the district’s new establishments, Row 34.
