Boston’s story is often told in part through its history of mapping. City maps reveal how the land is shaped and what values were important to the cartographers and citizens who commissioned them. Ubiquitous visual tools today, maps also talk about property, insurance, neighborhoods, history, religion, politics, and even the future. Join us on Tuesday, March 1, to learn more about some provocative past depictions of Boston using the visual language of maps.

This is a program of the BSA Foundation.

Space is limited. To register, email [email protected] with “Boston’s Narrative 3/1” in the subject line.
