Rainsford Island: Resort to Reformatory
Ellen Berkland Boston City Archeologist
Elizabeth Carella curator, Archives for Historical Documentation
Ellen P. Berkland, Boston City Archeologist, and Elizabeth Carella, Curator of Photography, present how one archeological field season and extensive documentary research shed light on the fascinating history of Rainsford Island.
From a farm, summer resort, quarantine hospital, almshouse and a boy's reformatory to eventually an abandoned 11 acres, Rainsford Island in Boston Harbor has served many since its 1636 occupation by Edward Rainsford. This slide lecture reviews the archeological and historic evidence and examines the ways in which the island has served the marginalized populations of Boston for decades.
