The Old State House, built in 1713, is Boston’s oldest public building. It was once the seat of colonial government, and now serves as Boston’s History Museum. Just outside the Old State House the infamous Boston Massacre took place and from its balcony the Declaration of Independence was first read to the citizens of Boston. Your guests will climb an elegant spiral stairway to the restored chambers, where patriots such as John Hancock and Samuel Adams once occupied. Today is it the perfect location for an intimate and unforgettable dinner party, lecture or meeting.
