A FOCUS ON AREA SQUARES
Preserving Inman Square
Inman Square used to be called the Hampshire Triangle because of the intersection of Beacon, Hampshire, and Cambridge Streets.
Local residents are very active in preserving the unique nature of Inman Square.
Plans to add high-rises in the area as well as a Legal Sea Foods fish processing plant were defeated.
An effort to down-scale was presented in the '70s and the tradition continues today.
