The Old State House

This is the Old State House in Boston. Right in front of it is where the Boston Massacre took place in March 5, 1770.
Here is Alicia standing next to a model of it. I should have thought these posts out better. I would have put the picture of me with John Hancock's outfit here because it was taken inside of this building.
This is Priscilla Melvill. She was married to Thomas Melvill, a participant in the Boston Tea party. He was present during the Boston Massacre.

The Old State house looks miniature even at full size.

Yes. It is totally dwarfed by the buildings around it. It was also in danger of being taken down...but people rose up to save it.

It looks sadly out of place now.

Wow, it looks like your family had a great time in Boston! Great photos, Priscilla!

Oh, and Merry Christmas!!!!
