Event description

Description

Anne Hutchinson remains one of the more complex characters among the early Puritan settlers in Boston. She was a highly articulate woman, who served as a bold and outspoken critic and who threatened the religious and economic fabric of the colony in 1637. A statue on the grounds of the Boston State House honors Anne as exponent of religious freedom, but she was much more.

The enigmatic story of Anne’s Antinomian teachings, her prosecution by John Winthrop, her support then condemnation by Rev. John Cotton, her excommunication and banishment is a Boston legend taught to every school child.

On Saturday, Octover 20, we invite you to walk with us as we unravel the legend, meet the major characters in her tragedy, and visit their home-sites, weigh their positions, and consider the lasting impact of her strength. We'll cover about one mile and finish at the site of the original school house, which later became the first location of the Boston Latin School on School Street.

Sign up now to join our experienced, knowledgeable guide in exploring the legend and reality of Anne Marbury Hutchinson. Space is very limited. This tour is expected to sell out quickly.
