Dorchester Illustration of the Day no. 1745 Norfolk & Epping Streets

Dorchester Illustration of the Day no. 1745


In Codman Square Bernie’s Bike Shop at 26 Norfolk Street and the houses around the corner on Epping Street were taken down to allow an expansion of the Codman Academy, a charter school connected to the Codman Square Health Center.  When the Academy learned that a portion of the Bernie’s Bike Shop building was built probably in the 18th century, they saved the beams that could be salvaged for a future exhibit inside the new building.
