Down by the River: New Takes on Charles River History

  • Historic Newton's Durant-Kenrick House 286 Waverly Avenue Newton, MA 02458 United States (map)

After years of researching and exploring the Charles River, presenter Kathleen Rowe has assembled a visual journey along the famous river as it winds its way through cities and towns in the watershed.  She points out historic sites and events that have taken place along the river, while also describing some of the initiatives that have brought the Charles world-class status as an exemplary urban waterway.

This event is supported by the Wellesley Bank Charitable Foundation and is part of the “Crossing Borders” series, a collaboration between Historic Newton, the Natick Historical Society, the Needham History Center & Museum, and the Wellesley Historical Society.

It is FREE and open to the public.
