Faneuil Hall
Built in 1742 — Boston, Massachusetts
#NC-17540-MA - Notecards
Also available in Notecard Assortment #AST-1761

Merchant Peter Faneuil felt so strongly that Boston needed a central market, he built one at his own expense and donated it to the city. To counter opposition from hawkers and peddlers, he added a second-floor town hall, where his own memorial was held six years after completion of the building.

Faneuil Hall became known as America’s “Cradle of Liberty” after Samuel Adams and others gathered there to protest British taxation policies. In 1805, a redesign by renowned architect Charles Bulfinch doubled the width and height of the building while retaining its basic style. Built with money gained from the slave trade, the building hosted Frederick Douglass and other well-known abolitionists in the mid-1880s. The glass eyes of a gilded grasshopper weathervane still gaze down on visitors as they approach Faneuil Hall to shop and to attend public meetings.
