Wat je gaat doen

Boston's many historic landmarks are linked by a 2.5-mile brick line known as the Freedom Trail. Walking at a leisurely pace, we will follow this popular route—deviating into side alleyways to avoid crowds and visit hidden history—while I share with you the tumultuous story of Boston prior to the beginning of the American Revolution. As a former park ranger, I believe history is best shared as a cohesive, character-driven story; to that end, I've designed a two-part narrative describing Revolutionary Boston during the 1760s and 1770s. On Part I, we explore Boston's Downtown neighborhood, discussing the development of an American rebellion from 1760 to 1768 through the lens of historic figures such as James Otis, Thomas Hutchinson, and John Hancock. With Freedom Trail landmarks as our backdrop, we will examine both sides of an explosive argument that would lead to the creation of the United States: Sons of Liberty versus Friends of Government. Our 0.7-mile, 2-hour storytelling stroll will begin on Boston Common (ca. 1634) and pass the many historic sites within Downtown Boston, concluding beside the Old State House (ca. 1713), the seat of royal authority in colonial Massachusetts.

I moved to Boston five years ago with a BA in U.S. History and Archaeology. Upon arrival, I became an Outreach Educator for the Paul Revere House (ca. 1680), one of the Freedom Trail's most-visited historic sites. I soon moved up to become the Visitor Services Manager for Old South Meeting House (ca. 1729), where the Boston Tea Party began. By 2015, I joined the National Park Service and spent two years as a Park Ranger for Boston National Historical Park, leading daily tours through Boston and interpreting Faneuil Hall (ca. 1742) and the Battle of Bunker Hill (ca. 1775) monument and museum.

Waar je zult zijn

After many years leading tours along the Freedom Trail, I know numerous hidden routes in Boston and historical gems as we weave our way through town. Due to timing, however, we will not enter any historic locations, aside from Boston Common (ca. 1634) and the Granary Burying Ground (ca. 1660). Our tour will conclude in the heart of Boston at the Old State House (ca. 1713), with easy access to Faneuil Hall Marketplace, the tourism hub of Boston.
