Overview

No Tax on Tea! This was the decision on December 16, 1773, when 5,000 angry colonists gathered at Old South Meeting House to protest a tax...and started a revolution with the Boston Tea Party! Built in 1729, Old South Meeting House was the largest building in colonial Boston. From outraged protests over the Boston Massacre, to the night when Samuel Adams gave the secret signal to throw 340 crates of tea into Boston Harbor, colonists came to the Meeting House to protest British rule.

Having passed Old South Meeting House scores of times in my youth, we ventured in with our two youngest grandchildren for the first time. Like many of the older New England churches, pews were boxed in, the pulpit was greatly raised, and a sounding board...More

It was pretty neat to check out a place of such historical significance. Admission is reasonable, restrooms are on site and it's a nice little stop on the freedom trail.

This Old Church turned meeting house is a stop on the Freedom Trail and reminds me of the Old North Church in design. We were fortunate enough to be there for a short presentation on one of the many important people that are presented here....More

A nice photo op at this old meeting house. We didn't have time to look around inside but the outside was worth the stop while on the freedom trail.

Admission is included with your Go Boston card. Great part of history. If only these walls could talk, would love to hear that. I love how you go out the back door just like they did back in the day. Nice little gift shop with...More

I highly recommend this site. To truly enjoy and learn from the Freedom Trail, you can get all you need without going into most of the places along it. Charging an outright fee for the privilege of going inside strongly suggests there is something in...More

One of the several stops on the Freedom Trail. Makes for some nice photos and interesting info inside. It's fairly small but still a great stop, recommended.

Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the

during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
