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.

Preservation Month Events in Somerville

Orchard Street tour of historic houses

Walking Tour of Orchard Street This Saturday

May is Historic Preservation Month and Somerville has a wealth of activities planned throughout the month.  Here are some of them:

Tomorrow, Saturday, May 3, 2014, the Somerville and Cambridge historic commissions are teaming up to offer a walking tour of one of my favorite streets – Orchard Street.  Somerville and Cambridge are considering nominating the Orchard Street neighborhood for the National Register of Historic Places.  The walk starts at 10 am at the Porter Square Plaza on Somerville Ave across from the Porter Square T station

On Sunday, May 18, 2014 from 2 to 4 pm there’ll be a Walking Tour of East Somerville.  “Identifying Architectural Gems from Gilman Square to East Somerville will be led by Edward Gordon of the Victorain Society in America.  The tour will begin at the Somerville Public Library, 81 Highland Avenue.

Mark your calendars for the Somerville Historic Preservation Awards Ceremony held on Thursday, May 22, 2014 from 6:30 to 9 pm at the Somerville Armory, 191 Highland Avenue.  A dozen Somerville property owners will be honored for their historic preservation work on the exteriors of their properties.  It’s a great opportunity to hear about the transformations people have made with their rehab and restoration work.

On Wednesday, May 28, 2014 from 7 to 8:30 pm there’ll be a talk at the Somerville Public Library, 191 Highland Avenue, on “Researching the History of Your House and Your Family“.  If you’re interested in local genealogy or the history of your old Somerville house you don’t want to miss this lecture.

For more information about any of the events you can contact the Somerville Historic Preservation Commission at     617-625-6600 x2532.
