Boston, Massachusetts

In 2008 and again in 2009, the DeVilbiss family got together in Boston, Massachusetts. Included were the DeVilbiss, Trousdale, Kazenski and Wilson branches of the family.

In 2008 we walked the Freedom Trail. It is a 2.5 mile red-brick walking path that winds through downtown Boston and passes by numerous historic landmarks.

The Granary Burying Ground dates back to 1660. One of the many memorials is an obelisk for the parents of Benjamin Franklin.

We visited the Paul Revere house which is surprisingly small. (No pictures are allowed inside the house.) Outside, encased in plate glass, is a 900-pound bronze bell that was cast in 1804 at the bell and cannon foundry of Paul Revere and Son.
