Updated on November 26, 2021 14:16 PM by Andrew Koschiev

Faneuil Hall was the largest market building that served as a meeting place for patriots on the eve of the American Revolution.

Along the Freedom Trail in Boston, this is a great place to grab a bite to eat. On weekends, I enjoy coming here to see the street entertainers.

It's known as "the Cradle of Liberty" on occasion. The ground floor of Faneuil Hall has several shops, but the rest of the building is historic. Let's get this party started. It's now time to take a look around this market.

Patriots Meet Here
