Calling all civic-minded residents; The time to plan for a Visitor Center and Museum in East Boston is now.

by Ron Hardaway - Project Coordinator

During the first quarter of this year there will be presentations about the proposed East Boston VISITOR CENTER AND MUSEUM held at many of our neighborhood associations and business gatherings.

The purpose of these presentations are to share with everyone the planning that has gone on contiguously since January - 2010, when the news announced that the Immigration Station on Marginal Street at the harbor edge, would be demolished by Massport. This site stood as a monument to the location where many area ancestors first entered the United States, New England and our own, East Boston.

It seemed disrespectful that such a landmark could, and presently has, been removed from our physical community. The individuals and families who came through that port-of-entry deserve to be honored for their sense of adventure and their contribution to the many industries centered here. East Boston immigrants, in the past and through the present, have shaped the character of our neighborhood and Boston beyond.

To correct this injustice, a small group of your neighbors began thinking of ways to document and tell this historic story. We felt our purpose, for sure, should be to inform the children of these early immigrants of their heritage. In addition, other benefits should include informing the many visitors that pass our way due our proximity to the airport and introducing new comers to this community as a place for their business or they might find our town appealing for their residency.

Therefore, please join your neighbors at one of these brief presentations and complete your personal evaluation form, we will provided. We solicit your comments and suggestions in making this new venture a success for our community and commemorating these ancestors in their contributions and early development of our nation and East Boston.

City Councilor, Salvatore LaMattina also welcomes your comments.

For more information please contact

* A sincere "Thank you" to members of the East Boston Initiative who have contributed of their time and talents to bring this concept forward.
