Walking Tour of Stony Brook
Join the Jamaica Plain Historical Society to explore a fascinating industrial area at the geographic heart of Boston that includes 19th-century tannery and brewery buildings, the homes of early German settlers, and today’s Samuel Adams beer company. 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.
Meet your guide in front of the Stony Brook T stop. Tours are cancelled in the case of heavy rain.

More About Stony Brook station (MBTA)
Stony Brook station is a small, quiet station tucked into the ground between Jackson and Green Street Stations. It is another access point to the subway serving densely populated south Jamaica Plain. With its adjacent seating, stone engraved poetry and proximity to a public green space, the station has a community park-like feel. With 12 bicycle spaces, no car parking and side street access, this station is primarily used by pedestrians on their way into town or out to Forest Hills. Like Green Street, it connects to only one bus route, the #48 which serves South and Centre Streets.
