Walking tour of Sumner Hill, Jamaica Plain

Developed as a suburb by General William Hyslop Sumner in the mid-nineteenth century, this National Historic District includes one of the finest collections of Victorian houses in the area.

The tour includes the ancestral home of the Dole Pineapple Company founder, as well as the homes of progressives who were active as abolitionists and women suffragists.


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