Announcing a new Meetup for Nerd Fun - Boston!

What: Presidents Week Open House Tour w/ lecture on Washington @ Longfellow House

When: February 21,[masked]:00 PM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Meetup Description: Presidents Week Open House Tours:

"In honor of Presidents` Day, these special house tours will focus on George Washington, who once used the house as his headquarters, and other presidents connected to the home or to the Longfellow family"

Price: $3.00.
Time: Let's go to the 1:00 pm tour. Tours on this day are at 11:30 AM, 1:00 PM, 2:00 PM, 3:00 PM. From what I can recall, the Longfellow House tour is 40 minutes, plenty of time to go wait in line for the lecture afterwards.

Location: Longfellow National Historic Site - 105 Brattle Street - Cambridge - MA

Faded Memory: The Longfellow House as Washington`s Most Important Headquarters

Time: 2:00 PM
Location: Carriage House - Longfellow National Historic Site - 105 Brattle Street - Cambridge - MA

"Dr. Robert Mitchell, professor emeritus at Clark University, will discuss how the legacy of General George Washington`s first Revolutionary War headquarters has fallen from memory despite the best efforts of the Longfellow family - and how it can be reclaimed".

About Dr. Mitchell:

According to the Clark University site, at "Professor Robert Mitchell received his Ph.D. (in sociology) from Northwestern University in 1970. Before coming to Clark he taught at Swarthmore College and Penn State University and was a Senior Fellow at Resources for the Future a nonprofit research organization in Washington D.C. He retired from Clark at the end of the 2002 academic year as Professor Emeritus".

Where to meet:
Let's meet up at the front gates, if it is not too cold. T.J. Maher will be there at 12:30 pm, herding bodies. He is short, 5 foot 7, short brown hair, blue eyes, and will be wearing a "Hello My Name is T.J." nametag, and a red MEETUP sign will be attached to his black messenger bag. We can head in at 12:45 pm. You go through the gate, up the walkway, around the house, to the rear entrance of the Longfellow House, into the Gift Shop. I'm limiting this to 20 people, since the house tours can't fit more than that. It's okay if you initially RSVP "Maybe", but a few days before, please RSVP "No" if you can't make it, in case there is anyone on the Waitlist.

Don't want to go on the house tour? Just want to hear the lecture? We should be outside the Carriage House at 1:45 pm, if I am not mistaken. In the RSVP just mention you simply want to attend the lecture. T.J. will be looking like a complete geek, holding up an 11 x 17 red MEETUP sign.

... I was thinking of making reservations for brunch at Z Square in Harvard Square for 11 am.
