|Old South Meeting House - 1729|
The Old South Meeting House was the largest building in Colonial Boston and thus was the location used for many gatherings of political protesters in the years prior to the Revolution. It was also the meeting place where Bostonians met just prior to the Boston Tea Party.
|Old State House - 1713|
|Faneuil Hall - 1742|
Near Faneuil Hall are the Quincy Market, and old pub, and the Union Oyster House built in 1713 is one of the oldest restaurants in the country.
|Old North Church - 1723|
|Paul Revere House - 1680|
Moving into north Boston, the Italian area, you come to the Paul Revere House. The home, a two-story clapboard built in 1680, is said to be Boston's oldest building. Not too far away is the famous Old North Church.
The last two points of interest are the USS Constitution (1797) and Bunker Hill Monument. We were getting tired and these last two stops were a pretty significant additional hike so we didn't continue on to them on this trip.
