The history of Boston-Edison, its architecture, and the sense of community that we have all grown to love is unmatched by other Detroit neighborhoods. While these features make Boston-Edison special, the most important feature of this neighborhood is you, our residents. The Historic Boston-Edison Association works to maintain and strengthen the fabric of our neighborhood by connecting you to your neighbors, keeping you informed about issues that impact Boston-Edison, and organizing events that draw new residents and help improve the health of our neighborhood.
While the Historic Boston-Edison Association is doing wonderful work to keep our neighborhood connected and beautiful, the Association is dependent on your participation and support.
By joining the Association, you are supporting organization of the annual Holiday Home Tour, The Sounds of Music House Concert Series, Picnic in the Park and other events that bring neighbors together. You are making the publication of the Historic Boston-Edison Newsletter possible and keeping the Security Patrol active to deter crime. Perhaps most importantly, you are ensuring that you have a voice in the direction of our neighborhood and the Association has the resources it needs to continue to advocate on behalf of the interests of Boston-Edison residents. Our HBEA Board of Directors is elected by the Association members. Help us preserve what makes this neighborhood a great place to live. Join the Historic Boston-Edison Association today!
