"A Taste for Revolution"

This "Cradle of Liberty" was the site of numerous Revolutionary-era debates, meetings and protests, a legacy carried forward by the subsequent generations that used the historic Faneuil Hall to further their cause. Built in 1742, Faneuil Hall was originally designed to serve as a central marketplace, a gift bestowed upon the people of Boston by its namesake, Peter Faneuil, a wealthy local merchant. The ground floor is fitted with shops and eateries that are part of a larger market complex made up of the North, South and Quincy Market Halls. Upstairs is the legendary meeting hall, still used to this date for civic and public gatherings, while the third floor holds a museum and armory. Utilized over the years by labor unions, suffragists, abolitionists and several others as the epicenter of their campaigns, the walls of the stately Faneuil Hall seem almost to reverberate with the echoes of their impassioned voices, appealing to the masses to uphold the nation's founding principles of liberty, equality and justice. The Faneuil Hall is also part of the Freedom Trail.
