Calling all history buffs

Please join Mike Manning of the Friends of the Boston Harborwalk (FBHW) on a special evening guided walking tour of Fort Independence at Castle Island. This tour will focus on the history of Castle Island from the first fort (1634) to the present-day fort (1830s). You will walk the perimeter of the fort and discuss Edgar Allen Poe, the Quasi-War, the Spanish-American War, and the fort’s present-day recreational use. In addition, there will be talk about the inner harbor islands, the massive Boston harbor clean-up, Logan International Airport, and the Conley container terminal.  The fun takes place on Thursday from 6pm-8pm.

Plan to meet to the right of Sullivan’s at the picnic tables, where you’ll see a blue pole beacon with a small wind turbine and solar panel. All are welcome, but please only RSVP if you plan to come, as space is limited. We also want to be able to contact you in case of inclement weather.

The tour starts/ends at Sullivan’s outdoor picnic tables ~ 1.5 miles

Please wear comfortable walking shoes and bring your own water bottle.  You can reserve your spot here!
