Faneuil Hall was built in 1742 at the site of the old town dock. Samuel Adams was often heard voicing his opinion against the imposition of taxes on the colonies encouraging the Colonist to rise up against the British.
The Hall has an impressive collection of art that memorializes personalities who played a roll in the country’s early history. Four of the five Massachusetts signers of the Declaration of Independence are represented here. Make sure you pick up a guide at the Faneuil Hall Visitor Center run by the National Park Service.
Today, the first floor is a vibrant marketplace for locals and tourists alike.
Nicknamed by some as, the home of free speech, Faneuil Hall is located on Boston’s Freedom Trail between the Old State House and the Paul Revere House. The Freedom Trail is the best way to take in the historic sites of the city. Just follow the 2.5 mile red line painted on the sidewalks and streets!
