Paul Revere House is offering family programs in which children (and their accompanying adults) will make and take home samples of typical work done by Paul and Rachel Revere.
“The Revere Family at Work”Somewhere Sarah Revere (Paul’s first wife) is wondering why she’s not getting any attention. But we don’t have nearly as much information about her as about Rachel, nor any portraits.
Wednesday, 20 February, and Friday, 22 February
10:30 to 12:00 A.M.
Both Paul Revere and his wife Rachel worked hard to keep their large family fed, clothed, and healthy. During this program discover what kinds of chores the Reveres (adults and children) completed in each room in their house. Then try your hand at engraving metal as Revere did in his silversmith shop and make an herbal remedy Rachel may have used to treat her children’s headaches. Participants will take home both an engraved piece of copper and a small cloth bag of dried herbs.
Each presentation is limited to 20 people. The fee is $4.50 for children ages 7-11 and accompanying adults. Price includes admission to the Revere House. Reservations are required and may be made by calling the Revere House at 617-523-2338.
