We went to Boston, on Saturday, January 12, 2019, for the last day of ‘Durgin Park‘. But, given we are members (of long-standing) of the ‘Museum of Science‘ it would have been crazy not to spend some time there as well. And that is exactly what we did, and as ever it was worthwhile and rewarding. Plus, as members we get discounted parking; $22 for 9-hours (which by Boston standards is not too bad).
I took more pictures — many more. But, just wanted to share a few with you. Enjoy.

I am not sure whether this is a new exhibit or whether it never fully registered with me previously. We go to the ‘Museum of Science‘ at least thrice a year, and have done for years and years. So, not much I haven’t seen.
But, I saw this yesterday. I knew what it was as soon as I saw it. Reading the accompanying sign only confirmed what I knew.
Neat. But, I am not 100% happy with the depiction. They seemed to have it garbled. It was unlikely to have been a ruin, in such disrepair, when folks were still living there! So, don’t call it ‘the ruins’ and show people still climbing it with ladders.
Also doesn’t explain why it is called the ‘White House‘. Yes, you can just about see the white building at the back. They believe it was painted white to reflect heat.
Well I have a LOT of posts on this blog about this ‘White House‘.
So, if you are interested just do a search on ‘White House Canyon‘.

Boston’s ‘Durgin Park’ Restaurant Is Closing Down, This Saturday, January 12, 2019, After 192-Years!
I stumbled upon this sad news accidently. I couldn’t believe my eyes. Had to Google it myself.
Wow. Talk about the sad end to a legendary property. A true part of Boston’s colorful history.
I first went to ‘Durgin Park‘ 32-years ago, in September of 1986. I am sure I was told that it was Boston’s OLDEST restaurant. Well, they have modified that claim.
I am surprised that they are struggling. They always looked full. Yes, I haven’t eaten there in some years. I confess to that.
It was such a fun place. Great atmosphere.
I am sad. I can’t believe that they couldn’t have kept it going.
