Description

“Part movie, part stroll, part participatory theater” Beacon Hill Times

“Step back in time and witness one of Boston’s most notorious murders…” MGH Hotline

Official Selection: The Boston International Film Festival

THE STORY

On a warm afternoon a week before Thanksgiving, 1849, Dr. George Parkman, one of the richest men in Boston, went missing. A massive manhunt uncovered pieces of a body in and under the Harvard Medical College. Professor John Webster was arrested for the murder. What followed was America’s most famous trial and conviction of the 19th Century.

THE EXPERIENCE

Evidence of the story still remains in Boston’s old Beacon Hill neighborhood. Use your iPhone or iTouch to follow geocoded videos that reveal the evidence, characters, and feeling of a time when mystery stories, detective work, and a century of progress were just starting. Developed in partnership with the producers of the PBS film “Murder at Harvard, ” this original production is a first-of-its-kind location-based adaptation of a major documentary film. The work is supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Center for Independent Documentary.

HOURS

Best tour times are M-F 10am-5pm. On the weekends most of the stops are open except for stop #8, The Applachian Mountain Club.

FEATURES

•Mixed-reality storytelling guided by a live map and location-based experiences

•Probably the only iPhone application that lets you:

• Play morality board games

• Find creepy old stamps

• Browse a pop-up book of evil architecture

• Breathe deeply in an ether dome

• Cinematic shorts reveal key places and plot twists to a crime that still lurks in the landscape of present-day Boston

• Access to hidden clubs, historic buildings, and hidden gems in America’s loveliest urban enclave.

FURTHER INFO

See www.parkmanmurder.com for more ways you can participate with the production and dig deeper into the story and its artifacts.

NOTE TO iTOUCH USERS

The application works on both iPhone and iPod Touch devices, although Touch users should view the map initially with a wi-fi connection. After that, the map will be saved in the app, but needs to be moved around to reload. Touch users may find their location on the map slightly off.

Awesome

:
This walking tour was awesome. It is easy, interactive, fun, and fact-filled. You will never look at Boston the same way. $5 is ridiculously low for this app. It is very well done and I hope they produce others for Boston. Best to do the tour during the weekday when stores and historical society are open.

5/5 stars

:
