Join us for author and lecturer David Kruh as he traces the origins of the late 1920s, when the Massachusetts Department of Public Works cobbled together a makeshift network of existing roads through Boston’s suburbs. The lecture begins at 7:30 pm in the Society’s auditorium. Admission is free for DHS members; $5 per person for non-members. Doors open at 7:00pm.

This lecture based on the book, Building Route 128, which Kruh co-wrote with author and speaker Yanni Tsipis. Copies of his book will be available the night of the lecture.
