From the Old Market square to the Radcliffe Yard to the Old Burying Yard, your guide helps you walk right out of the 21st century and into the days when wagons and horses rolled along Cambridge’s cobblestones.

Through live narration with a theatrical flair, your guide will tell stories of the struggles men and women faced in Cambridge during the American Revolution, and they will tell stories of earlier times when the puritans battled the changing atmosphere and their commitment to morality.
