Untold Stories of the Boston Public Garden
Posted on: July 24, 2016

The Boston Public Garden is one of the most serene spaces in the city, but even if you’re a frequent visitor, you still may not know all there is to know about the garden’s history. This lush garden was America’s first public botanical garden, and it’s still one of the city’s proudest attractions. From its incredible origins to its additions over the years, the Boston Public Garden is just as rich in history as it is in greenery.
