Somerville Massachusetts Events
Somerville is part of Massachusetts' 7th Congressional District and is located in the western part of the state, south of Boston and north of Cambridge. SUM (r) Vil Somerville was the first town in Massachusetts with more than 1,000 residents and was located on the eastern edge of New England's largest metropolitan area.
Inman Square and Lechmere Square in Cambridge are also just outside Somerville, and Sullivan Square in Boston's Charlestown district is just across the border in East Purple. To the south west, Porter Square Station, located on the border between Cambridge and Porter's Square, is a transfer station connecting the city of Cambridge and the south end of the Boston - Cambridge line. The Dorchester Line, a shuttle service between Boston and Cambridge, runs to the north-west of the city. There is a Dilboy pool, open only in summer, and a pool at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center, an indoor pool.
Davis Square is home to the Somerville Theatre, which houses the SOMerville branch of the Museum of Bad Art and hosts an independent film festival in Boston this spring.
Admission to all 21 + shows is free, but please note that you will need to make a note or donate to the artists before you visit. Remember that all events are free and based on donations, so please donate if you can. Register here for Somerville Theatre's annual summer festival of bad art and film.

This Saturday, April 15, from 10 a.m. to noon at South Street Farm in Somerville, corner of South and Main Streets.
The pottery part is even necessary because people, including their children, are looking forward to a Christmas together. The biological family is dominated by the traditional Christmas tree, Christmas pastries, cookies and gifts for the children.
Meet us with three local organizers and activists to discuss their shared experiences of protesting, organizing and advocating for change during this year's COVID 19. We will discuss how to organise ourselves against the ongoing pandemic and how to maintain this momentum in the future. Talk about changing places and changing lives in Somerville, and we will discuss our shared experiences with the advocate and protest during the Year of CO VID 19, as well as our own experiences.

In 2013, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation proposed demolishing the McCarthy overpass, which crosses several streets in Somerville. The result was to cut through the inner belt of East Somville from Winter Hill to the rest of the city.
The tram lines that have crossed the city since the 1890s have been systematically torn out. Commuter services have been suspended, and the $1 million in annual taxes that the Somerville Transit Authority (TAA) and other commuter rail companies pay to cities have disappeared.
Today, the elevated portion of the McCarthy Overpass, which runs from Somerville Avenue to Medford Street, and the bridge that runs over the MBTA's Fitchburg line at Twin City Plaza are in decay and disrepair. Community activists hope to extend the eastbound route to Lechmere Square, which would connect to the proposed East Coast Greenway. The building, which used to house the Ford assembly plant on Middlesex Avenue, was used by Finast Supermarkets in the late 1950s and early 1970s, but also closed in 1976.
Somerville, originally built as a Boston tram suburb, has the framework and floor plans that are ideal for public transportation. After Somerville became a township in 1842, the area was populated mainly by British farmers and brick makers who sold their wares. With the growth of the market between 1843 and 1845 and between 1841 and 1855 and between 1850 and 1870, this value increased six-fold to 14,685. In the last years of the 20th century, the situation in Somville stabilized, but growth returned to Westsom and then to the rest of the city.
After the end of the Revolutionary War, the inhabitants of Somerville were content to devote their energy wholeheartedly to the business of earning a living.
Fearing war was imminent, American patriots intervened and blood was spilled. The British marched through Somerville to Union Square and then to the foot of Prospect Hill, where fighting broke out.
