BOSTON (AP) — A new museum exhibit will trace the history of Boston’s West End bridges.
West End Museum officials say the story of the exhibit that opens Tuesday spans 300 years.
It explains how the Charles River Bridge, West Boston Bridge, Canal Bridge and Warren Bridge opened new goods markets and expanded residential and commercial development.
It starts from the time when Harvard College’s main source of income was the Charlestown ferry, and continues to present day and the $253 million Longfellow Bridge reconstruction project.
The exhibit will feature historical pictures and maps, and films, walking tours and lectures will be held until the exhibit’s run ends in April.
