City of Cambridge, in Partnership with DivcoWest, Renames Two Streets in Honor of Prominent Historical Women

To honor two visionary women crucial to the City’s history, they are proposing that North Street becomes Jacobs Street, and North Point Boulevard becomes Morgan Avenue. The new names will reflect prominent African-American women with ties to Cambridge who were involved in the suffrage movement, Harriet A. Jacobs and Gertrude Wright Morgan.
