Post Constitution Drinks: Goody Glover's - Hanged in Boston 16th November, 1688

To continue the Historic theme: The drinks following the tour of the Constitution will be at Goody Glover's on Salem Street.

The last woman to be hanged in Boston as a witch was Goodwife “Goody” Ann Glover, an Irish laundress. This North End resident was wildly accused in 1688 of practicing witchcraft by the infamous Reverend Coton Mather, pastor of the old North Church.

(So naturally, any Irish tragedy should be memorialized with a bar)

November 16th 1988 the Boston City Council recognized the injustice done to Ann Glover 300 years earlier, and proclaimed that day “Goody Glover Day”, condemning what had been done to her.
