10 down, 26 to go. Yesterday, Abby and I took a tour of the Massachusetts Historical Society. We learned about the history of the society, and saw a lot of portraits of important men and women. And a lot of gorgeous old leather books. I had an urge to sit down in the reading room and research some obscure historical topic.

I’ve always been fascinated by history. And Boston has a lot of history! I’ve never excelled at remembering historical facts and events, but I sure do enjoy hearing and reading about them. I am planning to return to the MHS in a few weeks, to see its new exhibit of early photographs. We saw the beginnings of the exhibit and it looks really interesting. Props to the MHS for making lectures and other events free and open to the public!
