Everyone with a connection to Columbia Point—past and present—is welcome to attend this free, public event, sponsored by University Archives and Special Collections, the Joseph P. Healey Library, and the Department of Public History (Public History Program) at the University of Massachusetts Boston.

Graduate students in UMass Boston’s spring 2015 public history seminar will interpret parts of the local history through time, objects, photos, and physical sites.

Community members are invited to to review the students's work and to participate in the process of making a history of Columbia Point. Together, a community history will be created and materials for a future exhibition on the neighborhood identified.

Bring photos, stories, objects, documents, and questions to include in an interactive timeline and in other historical media designed by the student project team.

Light refreshments will be served. Free parking is available.
