Traditions of the Season at the Paul Revere House
Saturday, Dec. 1, and Sunday, Dec. 2, 2012
9:30 AM – 4:15 PM
Step back in time to the holiday season in 18th century Boston with a visit to downtown Boston’s two oldest houses, the Paul Revere House (c. 1680) and the neighboring Pierce-Hichborn House (c. 1711). 18th century music and food and drink set the mood while costumed interpreters reveal sometimes surprising colonial holiday customs.
Enjoy complimentary refreshments of mulled cider and delicious treats based on early American recipes served on the first floor of the Pierce-Hichborn House.
Each afternoon from 12 to 4 PM R. P. Hale plays overtures, melodies, and Anglican Advent songs on a harpsichord and hammered dulcimer.
Admission during the event: adults $5.00, seniors and college students $4.50, children ages 5-17 $1.50
From November 1 to April 14 the Revere House is open daily from 9:30 AM to 4:15 PM except Mondays in January, February, and March. The museum is closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day. Regular admission is $3.50 for adults, $3.00 for seniors and college students, and $1.00 for children 5-17. Members and North End residents admitted free at all times.
