"New State House" State House Tip by Krumlovgirl

State House, Boston: 47 reviews and 87 photos


It would be hard to miss the beautiful golden domed building of the New State House. Located across from the Common and on the edge of Beacon Hill on Beacon Street, it truly is an astounding site. Being ?new? it was built between 1795 and 1797 on land that was owned by John Hancock. Free tours are given year round from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and last about 30 to 45 minutes. You can also give yourself a self-guided tour by picking up an info sheet. Just remember that it is closed on Saturday.
