Cambridge by Map
How old is the Cambridge Public Library? What was Cambridge like in the late 19th and early 20th centuries? How has the city changed, and how has it stayed the same? Join the Leventhal Map Center on a virtual walk through historic Cambridge.  Using Atlascope, a tool for exploring urban maps in metropolitan Boston, the Map Center’s Public Engagement & Interpretation Coordinator Rachel Mead will take us on a trip into Cambridge historical geography.  Learn  how the city has changed over time, and discover how to research the history of your own house and neighborhood.  This event will be broadcast online at the Leventhal Map Center’s YouTube Live and Facebook Live channels.
