Old South Meeting House


Get a taste of December 1769, at Old South Meeting House and in the town of Boston. Try on an item of replica 18th-century clothing, and sit in a 1769-style “family pew” with a portable foot warmer. Investigate an original item from our collections or try out a popular colonial American game, then use clues to search for the homes of early Old South Meeting House church members on a 1769 Boston street map! Peruse new information from a recent research project on African-American congregants at the Meeting House in the 18th century, including the biographical sketch of Scipio Gunney, a free African-American member of the congregation during this period.

Before you go, sample seasonal teas courtesy of DAVIDs TEA, and browse our Museum Shop for unique gifts and stocking stuffers.

This FREE public event is made possible with funding from the Lowell Institute.
