Welcome to the North End Historical Society
The North End Historical Society, founded in 2009, aims to preserve the rich
past of Boston's oldest and one of its most densely populated neighborhoods
by providing compelling programs to the community as well as archiving various artifacts collected from the public.
Our 2014 priority is to complete Boston's North End: America's Italian Neighborhood, a documentary about the Italian-American community that
has called the neighborhood home for over 100 years.
The North End Historical Society is a 501(c)3 tax exempt nonprofit organization.

About the documentary:
The North End Historical Society is working with award winning film television producer and director Maureen McNamara of Kendall Productions to produce a 50-minute documentary about the Italian-American community that has called the neighborhood home for over 100 years. The film captures the unique stories that North Enders have to tell, including why Italian immigrants made the North End their home and how they turned the North End into the most vibrant Italian-American community in
About Kendall Productions:
Kendall Productions is owned and operated by Maureen McNamara. Ms. McNamara is the winner of The American Film Festival and The Native American Film Festival for her PBS documentary “Mashpee” which is now part of the Smithsonian Institute’s permanent collection.

Through a generous grant from the City of Boston's Baxter Fund, we have completed an extended trailer, and conducted hours of interviews with North Enders from around the Boston area. We plan to complete and release the documentary in 2014, and we need your help to do it! We have already raised over $30,000 toward our goal.
