It was a crisp, sunny morning, and filled with Hyde Park neighbors, folks from Boston Women's Heritage Trail, Suffrage 100 MA, Hyde Park Main Streets, and Hyde Park Historic Society. Thanks to our speakers:

  • Mayor Walsh
  • City Councillor Tim McCarthy
  • Barbra Lee (Founder and President, Barbara Lee Family Foundation)
  • Catherine Allgor (President, Massachusetts Historical Society), and
  • Elisa Birdseye (Curator, Hyde Park Historical Society).

We enjoyed special guest Coline Jenkins, great-great-granddaughter of suffragist Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Special thanks to the Public Works Department for making this bridge a reality.
