Boston Freedom Trail Foundation® Walk into History Tour highlights
Boston Common – the 'Central Park' of Boston. Dating back to 1634, it's the oldest public park in the United States.
Massachusetts State House – the current state capitol and house of government of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, located in the affluent Beacon Hill neighborhood. You'll recognize it by its prominent, gold-domed roof.
Park Street Church – founded by former members of the Old South Meeting House, this church features a 217-foot steeple that stands out among the skyscrapers of the Financial District. It was used to store gunpowder during the War of 1812.
Granary Burying Ground – a cemetery founded in 1660, and the resting place for three signers of the Declaration of Independence, Paul Revere, and the five victims of the Boston Massacre.
King’s Chapel Burying Ground – the oldest cemetery in the city, founded in 1630, and the final resting place of John Winthrop, Ralph Waldo Emerson’s father, and Mary Chilton - the first European woman to step ashore in New England.
Old Corner Bookstore – formerly the home of Anne Hutchinson, an accused heretic. It was subsequently a meeting-place for authors such as Wadsworth, Longfellow, Emerson, Hawthorne, Dickens, and Wendell-Holmes.
Old South Meeting House – the famous meeting point for the Boston Tea Party.
Old State House – the oldest surviving public building in Boston, and the seat of the first elected legislature in the ‘New World.’
Boston Massacre Site – the place where the American rebellion was sparked by the killing of five civilians.
Faneuil Hall – a marketplace and meeting house since 1742. It was also the site of speeches given by Samuel Adams and James Otis as they encouraged independence from Great Britain.
