Bulfinch Triangle

Find out how this former industrial district has been given a new life.

Bulfinch Triangle

In the last decade, the Bulfinch Triangle has been transformed from a hub of transportation and entertainment to a neighborhood with a growing number of residents and a place on Boston’s skyline.

While our walk includes the historic landscape of the Mill Pond and the early 19th century street plan, we'll focus on the cycles of use since then. We will walk across the Triangle, exploring the area's industrial architecture and the transit elements that have shaped it.

You'll see how the area continues to change today and how adaptive reuse is giving this former industrial district new life.
