History runs deep in Massachusetts. Throughout the North Shore of Boston, every town has a handful of shops, restaurants, and other establishments that have been in place for many decades.
To highlight these local icons, Northshore magazine selected 10 local institutions that have crossed the 50-year threshold. Northshore readers voted for their favorites, determining the five winners for this year’s 5 over 50.
