Welcome to Explore Boston History, a site maintained by Professor Ella Howard at Wentworth Institute of Technology. I work here with students in my Boston History and Studio classes to share our local history research with the public.
Boston Then and Now is our multi-year project surveying the visual history of change in our city's diverse neighborhoods.
Explore Cedar Grove Cemetery (launching in November 2019) will feature exciting undergraduate research into the history of this Dorchester cemetery.
Explore Roxbury History (launching in December 2019) will explore the history of the Eliot Congregational Church in Roxbury, as well as the broader history of the neighborhood.
