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.

El monumento Bunker Hill conmemora la Batalla de Bunker Hill, que es la fuente del famoso lema de guerra: "No disparen hasta ver el blanco de sus ojos". Según dichos de la gente del lugar, el nombre de la batalla no es correcto, ya que dicen que esta batalla en realidad tuvo lugar en Breed's Hill. Para hacerlo simple, Breed's Hill ha sido renombrada como Bunker Hill, y la original Bunker fue destruida. Muchos de los visitantes terminan el tour Freedom Trail aquí. Los más ambiciosos pueden subir los 295 escalones hasta la cima.
