Longfellow's Wayside Inn

There are many benefits to having a boss located in a different geographic area (Houston). One important benefit is that when he did visit, lunch was on the company tab. New England is rich in history, but I sometimes take that for granted. I was completely unfamiliar with Longfellow's "Tales of A Wayside Inn" until my co-workers suggested this Inn as our lunch destination. I always think of the Boston Post Road only having fast-food restaurants and radiator repair shops, so this came as a pleasant suprise. The food was good and the prices were reasonable (even if we had paid). Unfortunately we did not have enough time to see some of the nearby sites including the "Wayside Grist Mill" and "The Redstone School" (of "Mary had a Little Lamb" fame). It's worth surfing to the site http://www.wayside.org
