Boston is chock-full of history, with stories dating back to the American Revolution and Declaration of Independence.

Whether you’re a local history lover or visiting for the weekend, Revolutionary Spaces invites you to explore two of Beantown’s most iconic landmarks — the Old State House and Old South Meeting House.

Take a walk through time

Imagine standing inside the oldest surviving public building in Boston. Well, you can during Revolutionary Spaces’ new “Slavery and Resistance in Colonial Massachusetts” walking tour.

Built in 1713, the Old State House was the heart of the royal government in the Massachusetts Bay Colony and the site of the Boston Massacre.

Fast forward to 1729, and you’re at what was once the largest building in colonial Boston: the Old South Meeting House.
