        Explore Colonial Boston

        Use this interactive activity—produced by WGBH and featuring materials from the Norman B. Leventhal Map Center at the Boston Public Library—to explore colonial Boston and the geographic and human-made features of the Shawmut Peninsula in 1723: hills, ships and shipyards, and a narrow “neck” connecting the town to the mainland. Learn how geography has shaped the lives of the people of Boston and see how different Boston’s landscape is today.

        This asset is based on a map from the Norman B. Leventhal Map Center.
