    While here, inquire about upcoming events; this building often has guest lecturers or speakers present in the main meeting hall. Interesting to see modern issues discussed in a historic building.

    In existence for more than three centuries, Old Ship Meeting House has been in continuous religious use longer than any such structure in the United States.

    Since it was the biggest building in Boston, meetings too large for Fanieul hall were moved here. One of those was the meeting that preceded the Destruction of the Tea (nobody called it a party)

    In 1773 three British ship pulled into Boston’s port carrying over 100,000 pounds of tea. Boston Patriots met here at Old South Meeting House to protest the tax once and for all.
