Local resident and historian George Wardle will describe the colonial and early American history of the Roslindale area from 1630 to 1870. This area has been part of Roxbury, Jamaica (Jamaco) or Westerly, West Roxbury, and Boston. Before it was large enough to be its own postal district, it was for a while known as “South Street Crossing.” Local street and place names associated with people from this era will be described. Cathy Slade, president of the Roslindale Historical Society, will then provide some additional history and talk about the Society’s activities in sharing Roslindale’s interesting past.
A brief planning meeting will take place at the end of this webinar.
