Celebrate Patriot’s Day weekend right here in Milton – Tour the house where Dr. Joseph Warren and Paul Revere made history!
Come to the Suffolk Resolves House, 1370 Canton Avenue, on Sunday, April 17, 2016 from 1 – 3 p.m. Members of the Milton Historical Society will be there to welcome you and to answer questions about the place of this house in the popular resistance to British rule that set the stage for the American Revolution.
Dr. Joseph Warren (portrayed by Michael LePage) will be joining us! Dr. Warren, a true Son of Liberty, came to Milton in 1774 and signed the Suffolk Resolves, a resolution about independence, at a house belonging to Daniel Vose in Milton Lower Mills. Today that house, relocated to Canton Ave. and known as the Suffolk Resolves House, is home to the Milton Historical Society.
The Historical Society recently received from Kraft Heinz Company, owner of Baker’s Chocolate, the pine office desk that was the property of John Hannon, cofounder with Dr. James Baker of American’s first chocolate business. This item and many other recent accessions will be on display throughout the house.
Bring your children so they can experience a bit of what life was like in the 18th century.
