Recommendation by Lemi
Perched up on Beacon Hill, across the street from the Boston Common, the Massachusetts State House has been the seat of government to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts since 1798. Ascend the stairs, follow the red brick trail, and a pillared building topped by a golden dome rises to greet you. Continue inside, to where the Office of the Governor and the General Court (comprised of the Senate and House of Representatives) have been running the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for centuries. Important statues, historic frescoes, and stained glass fill the marbled halls—every detail tells the city’s story. To this day, the Office of the Governor, the Massachusetts Senate, and House of Representatives still hold office in the State House. Call ahead to reserve a tour (free of charge) as they welcome tourists on weekdays, any time between 10:00AM and 3:30PM.
