Gerard P. Dewan Square
Gerard P. Dewan grew up on Wellsmere Road in Roslindale, Massachusetts. The families and friends in this neighborhood took it upon themselves to dedicate the intersection of Wellsmere Road and Washington Street as “Gerard P. Dewan Square.” We would like to thank the neighbors on Wellsmere Terrace for making this possible.
