SCHOOL VACATION WEEK
Brighten up your February by celebrating Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s birthday month with us! Perhaps most famous for his poem “Paul Revere’s Ride,” Longfellow also wrote a poem just for Old South Meeting House – one of six poems collected in a book published as a fundraiser to Save Old South in 1876. Explore an illustrated timeline of fun facts about Longfellow in Boston history, and design your own Longfellow-inspired birthday card. Tuesday through Friday you can collect a “Happy Birthday Mr. Longfellow” passport and stamp at the Meeting House, then visit the Paul Revere House to learn more and complete your passport!

Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
