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.

If you are walking the Freedom Trail, you will see it. There is not a lot to see. It is part of our American history and worth going by to see it.

It was pretty neat to check out a place of such historical significance. Admission is reasonable, restrooms are on site and it's a nice little stop on the freedom trail.

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.
