"Irish Monument" Downtown & Financial District Tip by Ewingjr98
Downtown & Financial District, Boston: 28 reviews and 36 photos
The Irish Famine Monument was constructed in 1998 to commemorate those who died in the Irish famine and those who immigrated to the US. During and after the Irish famine, 100,000 Irish settled in Boston, and today the city is 20% Irish.
This monument depicts an Irish family suffering in Ireland, and their transformation after arriving in America.
The monument sits in a small plaza in front of Borders bookstore. The area is frequented by homeless, but seems relatively safe.
Address: Washington and School Street
Directions: Next to the Old South Meeting Hall and Borders bookstore
