Brookline, Allston-Brighton and the Renewal of Boston


In the aftermath of the Civil War and the Great Boston Fire of 1872, those who would rebuild Boston looked to new ground in Brookline and Allston-Brighton. The two towns were invited to join Boston, but only Allston-Brighton accepted. The decisions and subsequent growth of these communities, along with Boston’s decline and fall during the same period, are told in a fast-paced story by local historian Ted Clarke. Learn about James Michael Curley’s lasting impact on Boston as the city’s mayor and of John Collins’s collaboration with Edward Logue in their efforts to create a “New Boston.” Travel with Clarke as he takes a look back at the fascinating events that shaped the character of these historic communities.
