Overview

Originally known as Peabody Heights, the neighborhood we now know as Charles Village grew in the early 1900s as a distinct community connected to downtown by the city’s growing streetcar system. The neighborhood combines the familiar rowhouse character with more suburban features such as landscaped front yards and park-like boulevards. It also has its fare share of colorful buildings and people. Join us on a walking tour with radio host, architecture author, and Charles Village historian Lisa Simeone to learn about Charles Village inside and out, from stunning architecture such as John Russell Pope’s University Baptist Church to stunning residents such as cult movie star Divine.
