A Celebration of Cambridgeport History is organized by the Cambridgeport History Project, co-chaired by Henrietta Davis and Michael Kenney.
Activities in Dana Park
Due to rain, there was a limited presence in the park. The following groups weathered the storm:
“If This House Could Talk…” booth
10am-5pm Go to the ITHCT booth for lists of sign locations, a brand new official historic map of the neighborhood (developed by Michael Kenney in association with the CHS), and copies of 1857, 1873 and 1916 maps of Cambridgeport for study.
- A Mystery History Photo Contest (Cambridge Historical Society)
Test your knowledge of Cambridgeport past and present. Look at photographs of buildings and building details; if you can identify all or most of the images, you’ll win a prize and bragging rights as a Cambridgeport expert. Led by the Cambridge Historical Society
- A Long History of the River - Led by the Riverside Boat Club

Our Celebration of Cambridgeport History happened thanks to its fabulous volunteer committee and its many friends and local businesses that donated time or materials. These include:
Ames Safety Envelope Company
Jim Roberts at Cambridge Communication Design
Ed Rice, Grace Church
The C-port Neighborhood Association was able to hire the band thanks to a grant from the Massachusetts Executive Office of Public Safety as administered by the Cambridge Police Department.
