What Makes Harvard Square A Square?

Harvard Square has been an intellectual and cultural center for nearly four centuries now. Join us as we explore the haunts of Joan Baez and Bruce Springsteen, Teddy and Franklin Roosevelt, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and T. S. Eliot. We'll see the Gold Coast, a castle and a horsecar barn, and the First Church and the First Parish (and learn why they split). Walk the square and learn why this part of Cambridge is one of the most fascinating places in the world. In case of extreme weather, call the Cambridge Center at 617-547-6789 for information and the rain date. Meeting point: Courtyard of 42 Brattle Street. Instructor: Charles Bahne
