Owner description: 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 secre3t signal to throw 340 crates of tea into Boston Harbor, colonists came to the Meeting House to protest British rule.

“Goosebumps.”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

Learning more about the history of Boston and the nation is guaranteed at The Meeting House. What happened, who was there, why they spoke out, and what was said all lends to a great afternoon of getting more in touch with history. Bringing the early days of the birth of our great nation to life is what is in store here. A must do!

“A Touch of Early american History”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

Seeing the pews utilized by famous (and infamous) people was interesting. Waashington and the British forces Occupying General used the same pew [at different times, of course]. The plaques on the wall are fascinating.
