Too often "history" is related by people who know little to nothing about what they are describing. this is not the case in the "Print Shop." Gary Gregory knows the history of printing as well as the history of 18th century Boston/Massachusetts.
Not only does he know it, he loves it. As much as you can tell he enjoys talking about the printing, when he tells historical stories he really comes to life.
I went with a small group of children (ages 8 to 14) and they were all enthralled. Each of them said visiting this shop was the highlight of their day on the Freedom Trail.
Make sure you stop by and talk full advantage of the printing demonstration, but make sure you ask Gary some questions and get an in-depth history of the role of newspapers and printing in colonial Boston.
If you can only go to one site on the freedom trail, make this the one.
