    Jan. 15, 1919: 
    Seventeen workers in the area die when a large molasses storage tank in Boston’s North End neighborhood bursts, sending a 40-foot wave of molasses surging through the streets at an estimated 35 miles per hour.

Some residents claim that on hot summer days, the area still smells of molasses.
