Join Mayor Martin Walsh to Dedicate the Restored Vertullo Building on Saturday, May 9th! 

Please join Historic Boston Incorporated (HBI), Hyde Park Main Streets, and special guest, Mayor Martin J. Walsh, to dedicate the restored Vertullo Building at 74-84 Fairmount Avenue in Hyde Park on Saturday, May 9th  at 12:30 p.m.  This celebration honors Hyde Park’s rich history and dedicates the  $1.3 million revitalization of this property including the opening of three new small businesses in the Hyde Park Main Street district.

Built in 1868, the Vertullo Building is likely the oldest and only surviving wooden commercial building in this district from the first years of the Town of Hyde Park.  It is a good example of the Second Empire style, popular in the 1860s when Hyde Park was incorporated as a town and new civic and commercial buildings were constructed along River Street and Fairmount Avenue near Hyde Park's two major rail lines.   Located opposite the Riverside Theaterworks and adjacent to the Fairmount Avenue MBTA Commuter station, the Vertullo Building is a highly visible historical anchor to Logan Square. The property has managed to survive largely intact because it has been in the hands of the Vertullo Family and their descendants since 1932.
