Masonic Boston

This Sunday I had a most excellent walking tour through Boston’s Masonic history, hosted by the brothers of Harvard Lodge.

The sites and sights were too many to try to present here, nor could I, as I had anecdotes and history coming out of my ears by the end of it. But roughly speaking: We met up at Jacob Wirth’s and parted ways at Joseph Warren Tavern. In between those two (magnificent!) watering holes we passed through the old Boston, Little Italy and Charlestown. We visited the graves of, among many other brothers, Prince Hall and Paul Revere. Saw the sites of former lodges and taverns as well as statues and monuments of Franklin, Revere, Bunker Hill … So much history (for such a young nation ;-)).

Anyway: spring time, freemasonry, good company and beer – a perfect day.

And some random pictures from the tour …
