Anne Hutchinson's Boston

September Member Event

The theme of England in America will be explored as we trace the steps of Anne Hutchinson, a notorious early settler of Boston in the 1600s. The base map for the tour will be the Boston 1635 map printed in the Book of Possessions (1881 and 1905). Walking with it, we will visit and envision the property of prominent Bostonians – among them the Reverend Blackstone house and orchard, the summit of Sentry Hill, John Cotton/Henry Vane’s house, William Coddington’s house of brick, Town Dock, the Great Spring, the Hutchinson household, and John Winthrop’s house.  References and comparisons will be made to concepts of building designs, materials and joinery brought from England. During the time of the Puritan settlers, there was little arable land in Boston and most owners had farms in the outlying towns. We will also consider how life in these in-town homesteads related to life in the farms and estates of their owners, like Ten Hills Farm in Somerville, John Winthrop’s estate.
