Description

Faneuil Hall, located near the waterfront and today’s Government Center, in Boston, Massachusetts, has been a marketplace and a meeting hall since 1743. It was the site of several speeches those who encouraging independence from Great Britain. It is sometimes referred to as “the Cradle of Liberty”.nIn 1761, the hall was destroyed by fire, with nothing but the brick walls remaining. It was rebuilt by the town in 1762. In 1775, during the British occupation of Boston, it was used for a theatre.nA grasshopper-shaped weathervane is installed on the tower of the building. It was a unique symbol of Boston, and it was used to reveal English spies during the revolution: if a person didn’t know what was on the tower of the building, then he was a spy.nThe Hall was once used for government meetings, and is now constantly used for political debates and talk shows.nIn 2008, Faneuil Hall was rated number 4 in America’s 25 Most Visited Tourist Sites by Forbes Traveler.n
