Historic Tours of America is saddened to hear of the passing of one of its former Cast Member, David Stickney. Dave was an immense talent who graced the "stage" at The Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum and Ghosts & Gravestones Boston for many years and brought his gifts to the world in so many ways. He knew how to find the best in everyone and could tell a story like no other. Rest in peace, Dave. You will be missed but can never be forgotten.

I keep forgetting to share this photo with you folks, from that very foggy afternoon a couple weeks back. It's like a ghost ship :)
I had to share …..my son Jacob Stearns birthday is Dec 16th and we are direct descendants of Phineas Stearns who participated in the historic event! We were there this summer and had to share this pics....taken Aug 6th 2019
Had so much fun learning about so many important people in our history at the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museums a couple months back while visiting Boston that I could not wait to come back and learn more and experience Tavern Nights. There stories are so important and they are truly inspiring individuals that we can all learn from and look up to. Thank you to the Cast of the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museums. Ms Sally Bass, Mr. Paul Revere, Mrs. Rachel Revere and Ms Dolly. You all are so kind and wonderful. And so extremely talented and phenomenal. I had the most fun and the best time during the Tour and during Tavern Nights and was the happiest because of it all. I greatly appreciate you all so much and for all the hard work that you put into Tavern Nights and these tours for us everyday. So grateful and blessed. Thank you for everything!! Until next time. Godspeed. Huzzah sweet friends!! 🧡💚🍁🍂

Great tour 09/22
I know it’s from 8 years ago, but thank you so much for your video about ship caulking! I’m an illustrator making a short comic about Frederick Douglass, and learned that he worked as a ship caulker before he became a famous orator. So, thank you so much for showing how it’s done!! 😃
highly recommend this museum!! fun for ALL ages
We had such a great time on Saturday. My son was given the card to be Thomas Williams, cousin of Mrs. May. After seeing this photo, he said he knows why she picked him, they look identical, same eyes and smile. 😊
