Two revelers whooping it up on New Year's Eve at a Boston night spot.

City of Homes


Welcome to the SilverStringers third edition of Victorian Walks through Melrose. This tour differs from others in that it covers a very hilly part of the city, and therefore is best accomplished in an automobile. The story was written by Bernadette Mahoney but some dozen other members of the staff took part in its development. It was truly a cooperative effort and presents eleven of our most beautiful Victorian homes.
