Purpose of this Blog


I am starting a blog about my interests. I have a real passion for visiting historical house museums. The Gore Place in Waltham, MA is an authentic Federal style mansion on forty-five acres with a working farm. There are many interesting house museums to see here in Boston and within an easy commute from the city. The summer is a perfect time to explore these museums as well as properties owned by the National Parks Service.

My other interests include fine art, architecture, early music, dance, early American history, urban walking, and letter writing. My blog will include experiences that I think that other people might enjoy. Please post a comment if you have a question or an observation. Thanks for reading!

Hi History Fan,

I just found a factoid about early American higher education. While most of the nine colleges founded before the American Revolution stayed private, two of them, Rutgers (New Jersey) and William and Mary (Virginia), became public institutions.

So there's lots of teaching history, even if the number of students then were a fraction of what they are today.

Hi history-fan,

It seems to be taking The Gore House a long time to respond to my question about apparel on their blog.
