Jamaica Plain Historical Society

or
Jamaica Plain Historical Society
The Jamaica Plain Historical Society was founded in 1987 to preserve and promote the rich history of the Jamaica Plain neighborhood of Boston.   From mid-May to the end of September we offer weekly historic walking tours of different areas of the neighborhood. The remainder of the year we sponsors monthly events, usually in the form of a book talk, lecture, or film-screening. Our website provides a comprehensive source of information about Jamaica Plain history with over 300 articles and more than 1700 historic images.   We also have a collection of historic resources, maps and yearbooks from Jamaica Plain High School and St. Thomas Aquinas.  Visit us at www.jphs.org
