The lion and unicorn statues that adorn the top of the building were taken down and restored in 2014, when it was a discovered a time capsule was hidden within the lion.
Nice old pretty building. Site of some old school shenanigans.
Pretty cool. They were just renovating this place and found out there was a time capsule in the gold lion as they were taking it down.
Boring place zzz
Boring (I dislike)
Very cool historical landmark with golden statues
Boston Revolutionary Museum
It is majestic history at it's best.
It's really super.
Mau ke sana....
The last of us best part of the game
really quick tour
Summer 2013 only: see the Treaty of Paris of 1763. Only 3 coppies exist and none have been in North America before now! This is the Treaty that ended the French and Indian War.
Currently has the treaty of Paris on display. One of only 3 copies in the world!
Let freedom ring: the Declaration of Independence was first revealed to Boston at the Old State House.
I came with the idea that I will see a basic museum but it's not! It's a really good museum! For adults, teenagers and children! Come at lunch time because it small so you'll have more space. :)
Pedestrians lights sounds like shooting. Pretty ironic.
The tours are great!
hipsters say its cooler than the new state house
This goes a foto of the NEW State House, but the way
The "T" runs right under and exits here. Take the orange line to State stop.
Featured in Ubisoft video game Assassin’s Creed III. Built in 1713, the Old State House is the oldest surviving public building in Boston, and has borne witness to many vital events in US history.
Tours stop outside the hall frequently--see if you can't listen in!
The beautiful spiral staircase is NOT original to the building, but was added when OSH became Boston's City Hall. Snap a picture anyway!
Don't forger to get pictures from all sides of the building
One of the nicest gift shops on the Freedom Trail. Lovely historic Boston mugs. They now assign you a Revolutionary character on your pass, which is fun.
Every July 4th Boston's original state house reads The Declaration of Independence to locals & tourists.
Any historical site involving the British getting their butts handed to them is worth visiting
If you're coming through to ride the State street T @5pm, get ready to wait ...
From 1771 to 1783, the city of Boston observed March 5th as a holiday, calling it “Massacre Day.”
Among the most important places in American history. Where Adams, Hancock, Otis, and others first challenged British authority. And laid the foundations for American government and independence.
The Declaration of Independence was originally read from here. Cool.
One of the coolest places in Boston, but h*ll to drive around! :)
Just outside the building, five men were among the first casualties in the Boston Massacre. The Declaration of Independence was proclaimed from the balcony in 1776.
