Faneuil Hall

Referred to as the "Cradle of Liberty," Faneuil Hall has been a meeting hall and marketplace for more than 250 years. Built in 1741 by Peter Faneuil, the hall has hosted famous orations by Samuel Adams and meetings of the Sons of Liberty.

Fun Fact: The thriving Faneuil Hall Marketplace, an eating and shopping center that is part of the original Faneuil Hall, was ranked America's fourth-most-visited tourist site in 2007 by Forbes Traveler.
