2012 Cambridge Discovery Days: Politics and Power
Women, Immigration, and Cambridge: A Look at the East End Christian Union
Drop by the Cambridge Room, the Cambridge Public Library’s Archives and Special Collections, for an intimate look at the papers of the East End Christian Union. Founded in 1875, the settlement house run mostly by women was a vital resource to immigrant families and the poor. The East End Christian Union – still active today and now called East End House – is one of the oldest social service centers in the greater Boston area. Explore wonderful photographs from the turn of the century and discover the kinds of unique programming, like Fresh Air Week, that made the East End Christian Union an important Cambridge institution.
