WALK DESCRIPTION

Benefit Street is recognized nationally for its extraordinary Colonial, Federal and Victorian architecture and its pioneering preservation at a time of Urban Renewal. Its multi-layered history of social, economic, ethnic and architectural change continues to unfold as new pressures, threats and opportunities emerge. Walk and talk with long-time resident Tim More about the importance of the past and the possibilities for the future of this College Hill landmark thoroughfare.

WALK LEADER: Tim More

Tim More is a real estate attorney, architectural historian and community activist who, with his wife, has lived over 47 years in the house they restored on Benefit Street — aka as the Shunned House from the story of that name written by H.P. Lovecraft.
