  Old State House 27.5.05
by Galahad
 
 

Not to be confused with the State House. The Old State House was designed and constructed in 1713 and was the British Colonial Governor's offices. The lion and the unicorn on the outside of the building were, and still are, symbols of the British Crown. During the Revolution the Old State House became the headquarters of the British army. I'm afraid I didn't have time to go inside where the Bostonian Society have a museum.
