2010 Cambridgeport Day
Celebrate Cambridgeport History!
On October 2, 2010, hundreds came to CELEBRATE CAMBRIDGEPORT HISTORY. History was everywhere in neighborhood on “If This House Could Talk . . .” signs created by residents and businesses. People explored the history of early Cambridgeport on a walking tour with Charles Sullivan, Executive Director of the Cambridge Historical Commission. Others viewed the creative map display, My Cambridgeport: Personal Maps of the Neighborhood, at Gallery 263, and participated in hands-on activities (including a “Mystery-History” photo game, a scavenger hunt for kids, and a chance to row on land with the Riverside Boat Club) in Dana Park. All enjoyed a potluck supper hosted by the Cambridgeport Neighborhood Association, and danced to music by the home-grown Bagboys.
Everyone is encouraged to participate in the 2011 C-Port Day. To create and display a “If This House Could Talk . . .” sign
