    HISTORYJuly 5, 2012
    Built in 1729, this was where some 5,000 colonists gathered on December 16, 1773, for a protest that culminated that night in the Boston Tea Party.

    While here, inquire about upcoming events; this building often has guest lecturers or speakers present in the main meeting hall. Interesting to see modern issues discussed in a historic building.

    It was at this location that Samuel Adams spoke his famous words, “Gentlemen, this meeting can do nothing more to save the country,” and the Tea party started.

    When you visit, listen for the bell in the clock tower! It's a Paul Revere original that was installed in 2011!

    Since it was the biggest building in Boston, meetings too large for Fanieul hall were moved here. One of those was the meeting that preceded the Destruction of the Tea (nobody called it a party)

    Great museum to visit to understand the importance of free speech and how that very notion led to many protests/movements that shaped Boston and the United States. Read more

    In 1773 three British ship pulled into Boston’s port carrying over 100,000 pounds of tea. Boston Patriots met here at Old South Meeting House to protest the tax once and for all.
