Activating Historic Sites in Dorchester
Old South Meeting House
Boston, MA
Share this event:

Learn from Kathy Kottaridis of Historic Boston Inc. (HBI) about the ongoing efforts to green and revitalize Columbia Road, Dorchester, and the city as a whole. Then listen in as entrepreneur, Dorchester native, and local history activist Noah Hicks shares his behind-the-scenes story of the Uphams Corner 1912 Comfort Station and its upcoming transformation into Sip & Spoke Bike Kitchen. This stucco and tile mission style building, adjacent to the historic Dorchester North Burying Ground, was built over a century ago to support Bostons expanding streetcar system, and has been unused since 1977. Today, HBI is repurposing the comfort station to help preserve and tell the story of Dorchesters urbanization and transportation growth in the early 20th century. This building will soon house Sip & Spoke, a neighborhood business and gathering place featuring bicycle repair services and cappuccinos! Hear how the rehabilitation of this historic building promises to contribute to an ongoing urban renaissance.

Note: This program is an expanded version of a lecture originally scheduled as part of the 2017 series Churches, Cafes & Community Centers: Historic Preservation for Boston's Neighborhoods, which had to be canceled because of a building-related emergency.

This program is made possible with support from the Lowell Institute. FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, registration requested at
