The Old State House, built in 1713, was the seat of the colonial government. On the street behind it we all stood on the site of the Boston Massacre. It's hard to describe the feelings you get while standing in such historic spots! As we peeked inside a side door of the Old State House we caught a glimpse of this beautiful staircase.
The Massachusetts State House was built in 1798. The original model for all U.S. state houses, it was designed by Boston native, Charles Bulfinch, who was considered America's first architect.
Old City Hall
Park Street Church was where the U.S. military forces stored gunpowder during the War of 1812. .
