NPS Stop 41-Boston National Historical Park: https://www.nps.gov/bost/index.htm
There is so much history in the Boston area. This park attempts to share some of that history and the stories that go along with it. Most of the park includes items of historical significance along the Freedom Trail such as the USS Constitution, the Old North Church and the Paul Revere House. We were able to tour the USS Constitution and the Old North Church and spoke with active Navy personnel and interpreters. We enjoyed multiple stories on the USS Constitution.

This is the house where famous poet Henry W. Longfellow lived but did you know that it also served as headquarters for General George Washington during the Siege of Boston, July 1775 - April 1776? The house was closed during our visit but the garden was starting to pop with color.
