Come Visit the North End!

The North End Historical Society does not have a building to visit at this time. However, we hope to have a center where we can invite students, tourists, and local history buffs in early 2017.  Currently, our volunteer staff meets in various places around the neighborhood to conduct business and enjoy the best coffee in Boston. Described on this page are a few ways that visitors can connect with the North End.

The North End Historical Society's programs are designed to bring out aspects of the North End's oldNorthChurchhistory and culture in fun and informative sessions. Many of these programs are free to the community, and members of the historical society are eligible for a discounted rate for the programs that have a ticket fee. For more information please visit our programs page.
