   6:00 PM  -  7:30 PM VML Virtual Tour Mini-Series Part One: Victorian Boston and Back Bay  
    Contact: Kelsey Socha   781-834-5535   ksocha@ocln.org
   

Until the mid-1900s, Boston's Back Bay was just that:  a shallow salt-water area which over time had become a malodorous refuse pit.  By the time it was filled in, 570 acres had been reclaimed and turned into a desirable living area with spacious boulevards and a gridwork of streets.  It is most famous for its Victorian brownstone homes as well as numerous architecturally significant individual buildings such as the Boston Public Library, Trinity Church and the curiously named "New" Old South Church.

Heide Hasselmann will be guiding you on this virtual walk through one of Boston's most beautiful - and expensive - areas, and learn some interesting facts about its residents. No registration is required for this event.
