Corner of Warren and Dudley Streets, Roxbury, c. 1895 from Picturesque Boston's Southern Suburbs. Click photo to enlarge. (Image copyright The City Record and Boston News-Letter, all rights reserved).
This view of Dudley Square c. 1895 shows the recently renovated Palladio Hall (to the far right), Hotel Dartmouth (center) and the area where the B-2 police station now stands (to the left of Dudley Street). You can read about the history and renovation of the Hotel Dartmouth here, in a blog post from the Affordable Housing Institute.
The 2006 Statewide Historic Preservation Conference, "Serving Neighborhoods through Preservation" will be held Wednesday, 20 September 2006 from 8:30 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. at the University of Massachusetts-Boston Campus Center. This looks to be a good one and I'm especially interested in the panel presentation on the work being done in Dudley Square and John Eliot Square in Roxbury.
