Meet your Group Leader in the lobby and head over to the subway, which is known as the "T" in Boston. Take the "T" to the Haymarket stop, and then we’ll walk from the waterfront to North Square, where Paul Revere's house has stood since 1680. We’ll begin next door at the Mariners House where a Revere historian will give an illustrated talk, then explore the Revere House. While it appears small to us today, in its time it was considered a very fine townhouse. Paul Revere lived here with his wife, five children, and his mother! About 90 percent of what we see today is original.
In the dining hall of the Mariners House, where men and women who work at sea can come and stay when they are anchored in Boston.
After lunch, we'll be back at the Mariners House, Captain Jim Sorrentino will talk to us about the history of the Mariners House and the Mariners Association. Next, we’ll go on a walking field trip through the North End neighborhood and have a behind-the-scenes visit to historic Old North Church — “One if by land, Two if by sea."
