Recommendation by Lemi
Follow the narrow red lane further down the street and Faneuil Hall readily welcomes you. The hall is always busy with visitors and performers in the area. Shops and restaurants draw crowds on the daily, but looking back to its history, there is more than meets the eye. Recall the Stamp Act mentioned earlier as it was at Faneuil Hall where locals first protested the tax, along with the Sugar Act and other British policies. It was, and still is, a fertile ground for discourse. The brick building has resounded with questions on slavery, women’s suffrage, and labor following the years of the Revolutionary War. It is because of this that Faneuil Hall is also known as “The Cradle of Liberty” or “The Home of Free Speech.”
