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.

I'm so glad we made this stop along the Freedom Trail. We had a 2-day visit to Boston with a 9 and 11 year old and I knew we couldn't do too many historical stops and had to choose carefully. Admission was reasonable for a...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.

I like history so I thought this was interesting. There were statues of different people and told you about them. Also it was fun to see the inside of the old meeting house. It's interesting how they separated people with small box areas. So different...More

If you enjoy any moment in American history, this is such an important site to visit. The building itself is pretty small but there's so much history packed into the space. Very cool to see where so much took place!

On a cold, blustery Saturday evening all was warm and cozy inside the meeting house. Two groups wowed the crowds with sweet harmonies and music. Darlingside and the Ballroom Thieves were the group. What a great intimate setting for a show. If you ever have...More
