A Town of History
It was about 10 years ago when I took my family to Washington, DC for a visit. We toured the majority of the typical tourist sites including the capitol building, monuments, and museums. Due to my love of history, my family and I were particularly interested in the two days that we planned to spend at the Smithsonian museums. During our visit to the National Museum of American History, we were surprised to learn that there was a connection to the place that we called home - Hingham, Massachusetts.
