Favorite thing: The Old State House was built in 1713. On July 18, 1776, citizens gathered in the street to hear the Declaration of Independence read from the building's balcony, the first public reading in Massachusetts. The Royal Governor presided here until the new State House was built on Beacon Hill in 1798. Today, it?s Boston History Museum.
Location: Corner of State and Washington Streets.
