If you don’t have Saturday afternoon plans yet, check this out. (Even if you do have plans, you might want to cancel them for this!)
On Saturday, October 1, 2011, Cambridge will again celebrate Cambridgeport History Day, bringing people together and creating a sense of place and community through shared history and common stories. Dana Park, on Magazine Street, between Lawrence and McTernan streets, is the event’s hub.
The Cambridge Historical Society‘s website has more information and a complete schedule.
There will be living history performances, fun activities for kids of all ages, a potluck, and a neat community exhibition called “If This House Could Talk.”
If you go, let us know all about it!

This is such a cool looking program and a fantastic idea for local history.
We featured the “If This House Could Talk” program in the Summer 2010 History News:
The program itself is a great how-to in terms of getting people/neighborhoods/communities engaged in their local history.

Isn’t it brilliant? I really like the Pop Up Histories idea, too, especially the 20th century issues – which people can still relate to: http://www.cambridgehistory.org/cambridgeport/Pop-Up-2011.html
