Green Street guide

Roomie and I went on a cool walking tour of Green St this morning, courtesy of the JP Historical Society. Was very cool. They have a bunch this summer. All free.

We learned a bit about the history of baseball fabrication and how Jamaica Plain is an intergral part of the history of the"modern" game of baseball. And we were lucky enough to meet the owner of one of the homes featured on the tour. He lives in "one of the best examples of folk Greek Revival in Boston," which is currently undergoing renovation (as it was moved form its original location).
