Park Fun

Kids watching a ropemaking demonstration.

The historic sites that make up Boston National Historical Park can be mostly found along the Freedom Trail. Many of these sites offer family-friendly activities and exhibits.

This webpage will be offering activities for those who are sitting far from where this history happened.

The first offering, we are calling In our Backyards. Students from the Boston area share the stories of our nation, that can be found in the neighborhoods of Boston.

The Internal Revenue Service used to conduct ceremonies rewarding its best collectors and other employees at Faneuil Hall? Considering that Faneuil Hall was the site of some notable tax resistance meetings before The Revolution, we must conclude that the IRS does have a sense of humor after all.
