Old North Church and Historic Site

The 1715 Clough House remains one of the oldest surviving brick residences in Boston. Now located on Old North Church and Historic Site's campus, the Clough House now serves as the home for the printing office of Edes & Gill and Heritage Goods + Gifts.

Visit the printing office of Edes & Gill, an 18th century colonial print shop, to learn from longtime print master Gary Gregory. Gary demonstrates the colonial printing process and draws connections between newspapers and printing with the American Revolution, active citizenship, liberty, and enslavement in the colonial era.

Heritage Goods + Gifts features local artisans and small businesses, particularly BIPOC- and women-owned businesses.
