Product Details

Whether you're a born-and-raised Bostonian, a recent transplant, or just passing through, Boston Curiosities will have you laughing out loud as Bruce Gellerman and Erik Sherman take you on a rollicking tour of the strangest sides of Beantown. Meet the Puritans, who fled Europe to escape religious persecution and then set up gallows to hang those with different religious beliefs. Say "Holy mackerel!" to the Sacred Cod suspended over the entrance to the Massachusetts House of Representatives chamber. Give John Hancock a hand - he could use one, for his famous name-signing appendage was stolen by grave robbers soon after he was interred.
