Today we begin a new series to appear on the first Friday of each month: Boston Firsts Fridays. #BostonFirsts
First Realty Management Corp. was founded in Boston over 50 years ago. We are proud to call this wonderful city our home, and call focus to some of the events & innovations that happened FIRST in Boston.
BF#01 Public Garden
Established in 1837 as the first public botanical garden in America. Host to the swan boats, ducklings, beautiful monuments, statues, flowers and trees, this oasis is one of Boston’s great treasures.
Fun fact: Younger sibling to Boston Common (of which it once was part). And while cattle were formally banned from the Common in 1830, I saw a young pig happily enjoying the Public Garden yesterday…
