Nina Zannieri, Executive Director of the Paul Revere Memorial Association

In honor of this year’s 200th anniversary of the St. John’s bell cast at the Revere Foundry in Boston, Nina Zannieri, Executive Director of the Paul Revere Memorial Association, will join us. The association’s mission is to inspire a deeper appreciation for the relevance of American history by sharing the life, legacy, craftsmanship, and iconic home of artisan, businessman, patriot, and citizen Paul Revere.
