Halifax Tap Room

This was a recreated “ordinary”, a very basic tavern which would have served travelers in the early days of the country. It was really cool to see on my visit to Halifax, North Carolina. You can read all about my visit HERE

Old South Meeting House

This is the beautiful Old South Meeting House in Boston, Massachusetts. Historically, it was the largest meeting house in colonial Boston and served as a gathering point for public meetings and debate. It was from here that the event history would call the Boston Tea Party was born. Today, I think it is a marvelous look at Boston – old and new, modern and colonial mixed together in reasonable harmony.
