The SHPC, in concert with the Cambridge Historical Commission

staff, is sponsoring a “Jane’s Walk” to honor urban activist and writer, Jane Jacobs. A world-wide

event, this year’s walk will explore the Orchard Street neighborhood north of Porter Square. The

cities of Cambridge and Somerville have been studying the area for possible nomination to the

National Register of Historic Places. It will end in time for lunch in the Square and visits to various

Somerville Open Art Studios from noon to 6pm. Rain or shine. Meet at Porter Square Plaza along

Somerville Ave. across from the T station.
