The Friends of the Boston HarborWalk are delighted that Lois Spiegelman of the Friends of Charlestown Navy Yard will lead us on a guided tour of the Navy Yard section of HarborWalk on Saturday, February 14, 2015 from 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM
All are welcome, but please only RSVP if you plan to come, as space is limited and we want to be able to contact you in case of inclement weather.
According to the National Park Service, over 200 warships were built at the Charlestown Navy Yard between its establishment in 1800 and its closing in 1974. When the Navy Yard closed, 30 acres became part of Boston National Historical Park, with the remainder redeveloped for residential and commercial use. The National Historic Park berths two naval ships open to the public–the USS Constitution and the USS Cassin Young as well as a Visitors Center and the non-profit USS Constitution Museum, both free to the public.
We will meet at 10:30 am in the front lobby of the USS Constitution Museum. People traveling from downtown Boston might enjoy taking the MBTA ferry from Long Wharf, located to the left of the New England Aquarium as one faces the harbor. Otherwise, take the 93 bus to the Constitution Road stop, drive, or walk from North Station.
The Friends of the Boston HarborWalk is a volunteer organization with The Boston Harbor Association. We meet monthly and host guided walks along Boston’s 47-mile HarborWalk. For more information on the Friends.
