You are invited to a lunchtime presentation by Dorchester native, entrepreneur and local history activist Noah Hicks. Noah will speak about the ongoing transformation of the Uphams Corner comfort Station into a bike repair shop and café. The Comfort Station, a stucco and tile “mission style” building adjacent to the historic Dorchester North Burying Ground, was built in 1912 to support Boston’s expanding streetcar system. The building has been unused since 1977. Today, Historic Boston Incorporated is rehabilitating the comfort station to help preserve and tell the story of Dorchester’s urbanization and transportation growth in the early 20th century. When the project is complete, this historic structure will serve as a vital neighborhood business and gathering place, featuring bicycle repair and cappuccinos!
Part of the Series Churches, Cafes & Community Centers: Historic Preservation for Boston's Neighborhoods, Co-Sponsored by LivableStreets Alliance.
$6; Free for Old South Meeting House members.
