In Franklin Park the tour will visit old stone ruins where Duke Ellington performed and another view of the area from Schoolmaster Hill, where Ralph Waldo Emerson once lived. After a stop for lunch at the clubhouse, we will continue into Forest Hills Cemetery, which was originally created as a public cemetery by the Mayor of Roxbury in 1848. During our visit, we will make a stop at the Chapel and see some of the more interesting gravesites. The tour will return to Roxbury Crossing via the Southwest Corridor Park.
