Popular Highlights


Massachusetts State House

This building was designed by Charles Bulfinch and completed in 1798 making it one of the oldest buildings on Beacon Hill. The cornerstone for the state house was laid by two prominent Bostonians Paul Revere and Samuel Adams. The building you see today is different than the one Bulfinch laid out because it has wings on both sides and an extension in the back.


Old City Hall

Boston's Old City Hall was one of the first buildings in the French Second Empire Style to be built in the United States and is now one of the few that survive. The design originated in France during the Second Empire (the reign of Emperor Napoleon III from 1852 to 1870). In Paris, this style gained popularity with the building of the new Louvre.


Paul Revere's house

It was constructed around 680 and Paul purchased it in 1770 meaning it was old when he bought it. He left on his famous Midnight Ride on April 18th 1775 from this house securing himself and his residence a place in America's history. Revere had 16 children in his lifetime, but mercifully they didn't all live under the same small roof at the same time. Revere sold the house in 1800. The House has changed a lot since revere sold it in the 19th century.
