With Boston’s rich heritage and being arguably the birthplace of our revolt and eventual revolutionary split from the British, it’s hard not to wave a flag and explore the city’s history when you’re there. So the day after the Craft Brewers Conference, I went on an all-day walking tour of the city, most of it spent along the Freedom Trail, a 2.5 mile self-guided tour of 17 historic sites from Boston’s history, and particularly its role in and prior to the Revolutionary War. There were also several old bars along the trail that I was keen to see, especially since last August I’d done some research into America’s Oldest Bars. So join me on a four-part photo journey of my day Drinking In The Freedom Trail. When you get to the end of each section, just follow the link to the next part.
Part 2 includes a visit to the Bell In Hand, which opened in 1795.
And in Part 3, the Green Dragon Tavern is across the street.
To begin the four-part photo tour, Drinking In The Freedom Trail, start with part one in the photo gallery.
If you go off the freedom trail to Mr. Dooley’s Let me know. My office is above.

Is that British Colonialist in the picture using a cell phone. At least military weaponry has evolved, but the cell phones look to be same.
