Suffolk Resolves House open to public


The Suffolk Resolves House, where a document that inspired the Declaration of Independence was drafted, will be open to the public from 1 to 3 p.m. on Sept. 8. The house at 1370 Canton Ave. is tended by caretakers and rarely open to visitors. This annual open house is held in recognition of the historic meeting on Sept. 9, 1774, at the home of Daniel and Rachel Smith Vose in Milton Village. Two days after the meeting, Paul Revere left Milton on horseback with the Resolves and headed to the Continental Congress in Philadelphia. The Suffolk Resolves were endorsed there and two years later used by Thomas Jefferson when writing his text. The Suffolk Resolves and the current curators, Rebecca and Amram Migdal, will be on hand during the open house. For more information, visit
