About the Event
We welcome back noted historian and author Anthony Sammarco. Mr. Sammarco will take us from the history of the Salem Witchcraft Trials, which caused tremendous anxiety and fear in the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1692 to the decorating of Beacon Hill, as a veritable neighborhood of whimsy, decorated with macabre skulls, bones and cobwebs to pumpkins and lighted Jack O’Lanterns, as well as costumes, parties and treats and the history of Halloween in Boston. Registration required.
Sponsored by a generous grant from The Cummings Foundation.
