The Jamaica Plain Historical Society sponsors occasional lectures and a regular weekly series of walking tours during the summer. We welcome contributions of photographs and historic essays about Jamaica Plain for use in our newsletter and on this web site. Contact us for more information.

We often get requests from the public to visit our offices. The Jamaica Plain Historical Society does not maintain an office. Our ranks are made up entirely of volunteers with no paid staff. We have digitalized our holdings and made them available here on this web site.
