"Former site of Old Corner Bookstore" Freedom Trail Tip by MLW20

Freedom Trail, Boston: 125 reviews and 208 photos


"Many famous books were published here, including The Scarlet Letter, Walden, and the Atlantic Monthly magazine. The Bookstore was built in 1712 as an apothecary shop, office and home of Thomas Crease. It is one of Boston's oldest surviving structures. Today, The Boston Globe Store which was founded by The Boston Globe newspaper occupies the building and specializes in New England and travel books and maps."

Not much to see here but you will pass this site as you walk along the Freedom Trail.
