Loring-Greenough House in Jamaica Plain

Tuesday, June 05, 2012 6:25 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

On May 31st, we visited the Loring-Greenough House in Jamaica Plain. Our tour guide Ulrike welcomed us with home-made cake, watermelon and lemonade. What a treat!

 Ulrike told us the history and anecdotes about the various home owners, and about the Jamaica Plain Tuesday Club, at the time an all women’s club, who saved the house in 1924 and has been in charge of its preservation ever since.
The staircase’s hand carved spindles are all different!


Across the street, as we exited theLoring-Greenough House, we took a peek into the oldest community theater, The Footlight Club.

And finally, great Thai food for lunch with the group and our guide.

Thank you Jocelyne for organizing the day and Ulrike for a wonderful tour !
