Plan of Orient Heights, Boston, Mass
- Plan of Orient Heights, Boston, Mass
With Boston’s rising population and increased demand for housing, the Boston Land Company began to develop former marshland in East Boston in the 1880s, including Hog Island (also called Breed’s Island) which became Orient Heights. A promotional map from the Boston Land Company and brochure from the East Boston Company, formed to oversee the residential and commercial development of the neighborhood, highlight the opportunity to own a single family home, away from the more densely settled neighborhoods of the North End and West End.
