Head east from Harvard Square down Mass. Ave and you quickly arrive in Central Square. The section of Central Square along Massachusetts Avenue between Clinton Street and Main Street is designated the “Central Square Historic District,” and was added to the National Register of Historic Places on March 2, 1990.
Now, like Harvard Square, it has made it’s way onto the list of 1,000 Great Places in Massachusetts.
That makes it greater than Kendall Square or Porter Square, since they did not make it onto the list.
