Walking Tour of Stony Brook, Jamaica Plain

Explore a fascinating industrial area at the geographic heart of Boston.

Stony Brook includes 19th-century tannery and brewery buildings, the homes of early German settlers, and today’s Boston Beer Company, the brewers of Samuel Adams.

In the 1970s, a coalition of community groups joined together to block construction of the Southwest Expressway through Jamaica Plain and other Boston neighborhoods. Today, the Southwest Corridor Park that runs through the Stony Brook neighborhood stands as a testament to the power of community activism.


Please note: the tour will be canceled in the case of heavy rain.
