This is said to be the sure of where the Boston Tea Party was planned. I honestly don’t know if that’s the case or not, but I’m willing to bet it probably was. It’s a great old building and has seen a lot of history...More

This is where the decision to toss 340 crates of tea into the bay was made. Feel the history. As part of the Freedom Trail, this is a must see.
