Reception begins at 7:30, talk at 8:00
The Commander's Mansion
440 Talcott Ave, Watertown, MA

Enjoy a conversation with longtime Revelers Charles Sullivan and Susan Maycock of the Cambridge Historical Commission, and authors of the new book Building Old Cambridge that explores the rich history of Cambridge’s architecture, neighborhoods and historical figures. Building Old Cambridge considers how the social, economic, and political history of Old Cambridge influenced its architecture and urban development.

How did this small settlement surrounded by mud flats, with a tiny college and few resources, become an industrial powerhouse and the home of two major international universities, and now a major center for software and biotechnology?  Join us to find out!

The evening includes a wine & cheese reception. 

Tickets are available at the door.
