WELCOME TO THE PARTNERSHIP OF HISTORIC BOSTONS

Join us as we recognize and celebrate the unique historical connections between Boston, Massachusetts, founded in 1630, and Boston, Lincolnshire, England, founded in 1086.  We are dedicated to education about the two Bostons in the seventeenth century and to preserving our legacy.

The Pleasure of the Taste: Recipes from 17th century New England is a collection of Puritan and Native recipes.

From nasaump to samp, venison to succatash, how did Massachusetts' 17th-century people cook and eat? Find out more in this original booklet of 17th-century recipes, with their modern equivalents for modern cooks.

Through the words of 17th-century English cookbooks for English "huswifes," the recipes of travellers to early New England, and modern-day Native American foodways preserved through the centuries, we offer you a chance to savor and enjoy the pleasure of the taste of early Massachusetts.

Try these recipes in both original and modernized versions, and see for yourself what was delicious in the 1600s!  The booklet makes a great gift!



ANNUAL REPORT 2016 Click here

2016 was a fabulous year for us with more people attending our talks and events, more media coverage, and more going on throughout the year.  

From walking tours to reading first-hand historical accounts to sold-out lectures, we fulfilled our aim of being one of New England’s leading groups for public history of 17th-century Massachusetts.
