Summer Challenge: Local Sites


Local historian Elizabeth Covart has posted a challenge to visit local historical sites, museums or other local experiences that you have been putting off visiting.  I have traveled to many countries around the world and seen many things but I have never been to the Worcester Art Museum for example.

So, I am taking her up on her challenge and I have posted a list of site I would like to visit this summer.  Now I know in all reality I will not get to them all, and some I have visited before but would like to visit again, so I will check them off as I go.  I am extending the challenge to all of my readers to take some time this summer and get out and explore the local area where you live.  If you do, tell me about it in the comments section below.

Here is my list in no particular order:

The Springfield Armory National Historic Site

Roger Williams National Memorial

The Old North Church

Worcester Historical Museum

Worcester Art Museum

Museum of African American History

Bunker Hill Monument (I have never been!)

Old South Meeting House

The Old Massachusetts State House

Granery Burial Ground (I have been but I would like to go back)

King’s Chapel

USS Constitution (was there years ago but would like to return)

Adams National Historic Site

Not really local but:
