Walking Tour: Castle Island
This class will be held outside with social distancing guidelines observed.
Perhaps you’ve never been to Castle Island and have been meaning to get there. Or, if you have had the pleasure of a visit to this beautiful spot, maybe you have been curious to learn more about it. This tour will cover the history of the forts in this area (from 1634 to the present-day fort) and a brief history of the inner harbor islands. We will also discuss the MWRA's Deer Island wastewater treatment plant (the key aspect of the harbor and the harborfront's revitalization) and Logan International Airport (a key component of commerce for all of New England). Edgar Allen Poe was based on Castle Island in the 1820s, so there's a slight literary component to this tour as well. Plenty of free parking is available in the
neighborhood. Following the tour, you are welcome to enjoy a casual seafood dinner with the guide at Sullivan’s. Limited to 12.
