Somerville/Cambridge Jane's Walk
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.
