Streets of the Industrial Era focuses on the history of the West End, particularly the streets in and around what is now known as the Bulfinch Triangle Historic District. This exhibit is a study of the changes brought about an area that was then, and remains now, a hub of transportation. Charles Bulfinch (for whom the historic district is aptly named) oversaw and influenced much of the changes that led to industrialization of Boston’s West End.
Come learn more about how the industrial era of the West End came about, and how it impacted the neighborhood and marked a significant chapter in the history of Boston as a whole.
