Submit Your Love Letters & Photos

Did you fall in love in Cambridge? Did you fall in love with Cambridge? We want your love letters – to a person, a neighborhood, a restaurant, club, or other fixture in the city, past or present. History Cambridge will host a love letter reading at Starlight Square, and we want you to be a part of it!

We’re searching for the heartfelt, the humorous, the angst-ridden, the joyous. Mine the treasures of your basement, attic or long-forgotten teenage diary, or compose a new love letter expressing what the city, its people and its institutions mean to you. We will be carefully curating from the submissions we receive to showcase all the many ways Cantabrigians feel love in – and for – their city. Share your love letters with us:

And share your related photos by tagging us on social media @HistCambridge!
