Carpenters’ Hall Present: A Toast to History--Behind the Scenes at Carpenters' Hall

Toast the season with a behind-the-scenes tour at Carpenters’ Hall hosted by Executive Director Michael Norris. Visitors can take a private, after-hours tour of the site of the First Continental Congress in 1774 and the birthplace of American democracy during this Airbnb experience. The tours begin in the main hall where the Congress met and where guests will see original artifacts from the period and a detailed model showing the construction of Carpenters’ Hall. Then, it’s up to the second floor, which is off limits to regular visitors, for an exploration of the gorgeous 19th-century library, rare books, and items from the Carpenters’ collection. Tours conclude with a Q&A, scotch tasting, and whiskey toast courtesy of ImpEx Beverages to continue the good health of all and the importance of history. Each guest receives a copy of Meeting Place of History, a fully illustrated booklet about Carpenters’ Hall.
