Historic Preservation Students Explore Boston

On February 15th 2013, ten PHPO students traveled via bus up to Boston for a weekend of historic architectural adventure. After an evening of exploring the historic pubs of the redcoats, the group reconvened in morning and received a private walking tour of Boston's wonderful architecture along with great stories of the past.They enjoyed lunch at the famous Faneuil Hall, and then it was off to the highlight of the trip, King's Chapel. The group received a private tour of the crypts located underneath the church and were brought all the way to the bell tower where they got a chance to try and ring the huge bell (made by Paul Revere's family)! Side trips to Paul Revere's home, multiple cemeteries, The Old North Church and many others were made. Where will history bring them next??
