Freedom Trail Stop 1: Massachusetts State House
Updated: Aug 15, 2022
Right across from Boston Common, our tour begins at the Massachusetts State House. It was designed in 1733 by Charles Bulfinch, a prolific figure in the early architecture and design of Boston. Originally, its golden dome was made of wood before it became prone to leakage and was eventually replaced. The State House was once coined as the Hub of the Solar System back in the 1800s and it's been named a National Historic Landmark for its significance. That's a lot of history for one state house! Our colonial guides take you back through the steps of history and imagine the landmark back before the golden-plated dome, and when Paul Revere oversaw the cornerstone ceremony.
