Jeffries Point walking tour

Join us for a tour of the historic, harbor front neighborhood of Jeffries Point, one of the oldest residential sections of East Boston. 

Enjoy stunning views of the harbor and downtown skyline as we explore the hilltop Belmont area of Jeffries Point. From Greek Revival row houses, to Victorian townhouses, to turn of the century triple-deckers, the architecture of Jeffries Point tells the story of East Boston's 19th-century transformation from a sleepy harbor island to a bustling urban neighborhood.

We'll uncover this story, and explore how the built environment of Jeffries Point reflects East Boston's 180-year history of shipbuilding, immigration, and industrialization.
