The Lansing Journal journeys: Paul Revere’s house


submitted by Jeff White

Jeff White (far right) led a group of about 25 history buffs on a tour of Boston. “This is the ‘Illiana Alumni and Friends’ history tour,” says Jeff. “We spent 2 days in Martha’s Vineyard; 2 days in Concord, MA; and 3 days in Boston. All of these people are local readers of The Lansing Journal (even the Postemas who live in Orland). We are in front of Paul Revere’s home. Paul etched copper sketches for the newspaper; therefore, we saw it fitting to take a picture in front of his home.” (Photo: Jodi Huizenga)
