Up Disclaimer: this post is history and photo heavy!Lots to see on this walk through the city of Boston. Many who reside here have not followed the trail, but it is heavy with history for any who aspire to fill in the blanks of their historical knowledge.
So if you are not a history buff you may not find much of interest in this post- but I sincerely hope that is not so! Sadly much of our great Nation's past is no longer taught in public schools and the Santayana saying may well haunt those who cannot remember history and are therefor doomed to repeat it!
The first historic point on our walk was Ebenezer Hancock House built in 1767 by John Hancock and lived in by his brother, Deputy Paymaster General of the Continental Army.
Next item of interest was this sign,
Adams and other patriots encouraging independence from Britain and is sometimes called "The Cradle of Liberty".
I thought I had a pic of this building but cannot find it. The sign tells the story and the bricks confirm the date of construction.
And the 1630 burial ground attached to the Chapel.
My DH's favorite dessert is Boston Cream Pie so of course I had to learn to make it, we do not have it in Australia!
We have more to explore for another day but it was late and we were all wet, and little dog was nursing a cut on one pad so we had bought take-out for dinner and headed home!
