"The old one by the British" State House Tip by Tijavi
State House, Boston: 47 reviews and 87 photos
The original state house, now known as the Old State House, is located in Boston's financial district. It housed Britain's colonial government between 1713 and 1776. From independence, the building was converted to several uses such as a produce market, a merchant's exchange, a Masonic lodge and Boston's city hall.
One of America's most important historical landmarks, the Old State House is today a museum dedicated to the American revolution. Take time to stop by the sound and light show on the Boston Massacre for a better appreciation of the most critical points in American history.
The balcony on the east facade is most significant for being the site of the declaration of American independence in 1776. One wonders if the founding fathers of America at that time have envisioned their country to become the world's most powerful, economically, politically and militarily.
