Founded in 1780 and located just steps away from the Freedom Trail in Charlestown, The Warren Tavern is the oldest tavern in Massachusetts and one of the most historic watering holes in the US. It was named after General Joseph Warren, a key player in the revolution and the fallen hero of the Battle of Bunker Hill. Some famous visitors who stopped here for “refreshments” include Paul Revere, Benjamin Franklin and George Washington.

On North Washington Street in Boston’s Italian district is this old ghost sign advertising biscuits. A chunk of the type was removed long ago so it’s difficult to conclude which company painted the ad. The only type visible above “BISCUIT” is 3 letters: “OMA”. Many years ago there was a company located about a block away called the Loose-Wiles Biscuit Company. They eventually formed the brand Sunshine Biscuits, which is still around today. They created many brands of baked goods such as Cheez-its, Animal Crackers and Hydrox cookies, but my guess is that this sign once displayed another one of their products - TAKHOMA BISCUIT.

The space currently occupied by Samuel Adams beer maker Boston Beer Company was once the home to the legendary Haffenreffer Brewery. Many of the original buildings and remnants from when the complex was built in late 1800s are still around. The top of the smokestack that towers over the brewery has been intentionally shortened over the years for zoning reasons, so the letters HAF are missing.
