On the way to Franklin Park, ride past Malcolm X’s former home and the Museum of the National Center of Afro-American Artists. 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.
