Boston African American National Historic Site
Become a Junior Ranger! When you come to Boston African American National Historic Site, find a National Park Ranger at the Museum of African American History’s Abiel Smith School, located at 46 Joy Street. A Park Ranger can give you a copy of the Junior Ranger Handbook.
When you complete the activities in the handbook, a Park Ranger will present a Junior Ranger badge to you.
