Explore the Revere House garden and find out about the wide variety of plants colonial women grew to flavor food, improve memory, ward off pesky bugs, scent bath water, and treat ailments. During this program, participants work in pairs to identify plants by their textures, tastes, and smells. After discovering the unique uses of each herb, children taste an herbal tea and prepare bunches of plants to dry at home.
The Paul Revere Memorial Association actively preserves and interprets two of Boston’s oldest homes. We provide our increasingly diverse audience with remarkable educational experiences based on historical issues and social history themes relevant to our site, our neighborhood, and Boston from the 17th through the early 20th century.
