From local resident and researcher, Anne M. Pistorio, comes this street name article including a picture of the mid-17th century North End, complete with a windmill on the location now occupied by Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Anne spent almost two years looking for this 1999 Boston Tab article and found it with help at the Bostonian Society. If you live in the North End, you will want to read the article to find out the origin of your street name.
