The Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum leads a virtual exploration of the history of the Robinson Tea Chest: the only known surviving tea chest from the Boston Tea Party. This 1-hour presentation will discuss how a young John Robinson discovered the chest, as well as the lineage of families that protected it and preserved it for over 200 years. Its journey to becoming a treasured artifact at the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum may be complete, but the touching story of this “box worth keeping” lives on.
