Paul Revere House Seasonal Celebration, 2-3 Dec.

This weekend the Paul Revere House in Boston’s North End is hosting an event titled “Traditions of the Season.”

The house invites visitors to:
Learn about 17th-century Thanksgiving observances, hear 18th-century music, taste colonial flavors, and buy goods made by local craftspeople for New Year’s gifts just like Paul Revere did! . . .

Enjoy complimentary refreshments of mulled cider and delicious treats based on early American recipes served on the first floor of the Pierce/Hichborn House.
The houses open at 9:30 A.M. on 2-3 December. Starting at 12 noon, “Artisans working in traditional techniques to produce useful reproductions offer their wares for sale” in the new Visitor Center, and R. P. Hale (shown here) performs music on the harpsichord and hammered dulcimer.

Admission for this special weekend is $6 for adults, $5 for seniors and college students, and $1 for children aged five to seventeen.
