Join the North End Historical Society on Saturday, June 18, the day before Father’s Day, as we honor some of the fathers of our country!
Where was Paul Revere going on his famous ride? What was his route between the North End andLexington? Was it a difficult trip? How long did it take?
One of the best ways to learn about something is to experience it yourself. We can’t get you a horse, but we can take you on a trolley to the places Revere himself stopped at or passed by on the night of April 18, 1775.
The price of the tour includes the trolley ride through 5 towns AND admission to the following historic sites:
· The Royall House and Slave Quarters in Medford, home of a loyalist who lost his property. The mansion was used by the Continental Army, and General George Washington helped plan the Siege of Boston from there;
· The Jason Russell House in Arlington, site of some of the bloodiest fighting during the first day of the Revolutionary War;
· The Hancock-Clarke House in Lexington, which was Revere’s destination and where John Hancock and Samuel Adams were staying and about to be arrested.
We will leave the North End promptly at 12:45 p.m. and finish in Lexington at 3:15 p.m. (and then the trolley takes us home). The brief tours (25-30 minutes) at each historic site will be interspersed with pleasant trolley rides (10-15 minutes). Don’t worry! If you have to leave early, you can always take the MBTA back to Boston.
Tickets are just $25 for NEHS Members and $35 for Non-Members. Tickets can be purchased online here or via check to NEHS, P. O. Box 130152, Boston, MA 02113.
The North End Historical Society thanks the Arlington Historical Society, Lexington Historical Society, Royall House and Slave Quarters, and Old Town Trolley Tours for working with us to bring this program to our members and friends.
