Education and Research Programs

Through local historians, scholars, and media initiatives, Washington Street Historical Society develops and offers educational resources about the history of the Washington Street neighborhood and its prominent figures. We continue to document oral histories of last survivors and descendants of the former Arab speaking community, offer historical walking tours of the area, host conferences and exhibits, and can offer educators, scholars and local historians to interested outside parties. For more information on these projects, contact us.

The first report of the Washington Street Historical Society is the commissioned architectural and historical analysis of two historic buildings of the neighborhood whose landmark designation we are seeking from the Landmarks Preservation Commission. Please read the report here.
