Welcome to Centers and Squares

As a Cambridge real estate agent, the city squares of Cambridge, Somerville and Medford and the town centers of Arlington, Watertown and Belmont, Massachusetts are my home turf. And as a lifelong New Englander who’s lived within twenty miles of Boston most of my life, I can introduce you to other nearby towns as we search for your new home. If you’re planning to sell your home in Cambridge, MA or nearby you’ll find plenty of info about the home selling process here too. Questions? Send me an email or call me at 617-504-1737.

Cambridge Discovery Days 2011

Cambridge Discovery Days

Cambridge Discovery Days

Looks like we’ll have good weather (not *too* hot)  for the first installment of Cambridge Discovery Days tomorrow.

Every August on two Saturdays, a variety of tours and talks are held around Cambridge.  This year marks the 150th anniversary of the beginning of the Civil War and many of the events will focus on the impact of the Civil War in Cambridge.

Cambridge Discovery Days is sponsored by the Cambridge History Collaborative – a partnership of local historical and educational groups that include  the Cambridge Historical Commission, the Cambridge Historical Society, Mount Auburn Cemetery, and the Longfellow National Historic Site.

In addition to tours of Mount Auburn Cemetery, the Longfellow House, and the Cooper-Frost-Austin House, there are talks and tours around town.  Here’s a sampling of the talks for Cambridge Discovery Days 2011: 

  • Telling Our Story: Fresh Pond and the Civil War
  • Candy Land
  • Discover East Cambridge Through Public Art
  • The Poet and the Civil War: James Russell Lowell
  • “His thoughts sounds no depth”:  Cambridge’s Greatest Literary Battles
  • Strolling Down Magazine Street

For details, times and more there’s a two-page flyer or a multi-page listing with full descriptions of each tour or talk.

Events are free, open to the public and held rain or shine.  Please note – some events require registration.  Check the flyer for more details and contact information.

Cambridge Discovery Days 2011 will take place on Saturday, August 6. 2011 and Saturday, August 13, 2011.  Self-guided tours of Mount Auburn begin at 8 am, the first talk begins at 9:30 am.
