TitleOld South Meeting House, Boston
Coverage / Year1729 to Present
DescriptionThe Old South Meeting House was built in 1729. At the time of the Revolution it was the largest public building in Boston.
InterpretationOld South was the site of a famous meeting on December 16, 1773, when a large crowd of angry colonialists gathered to protest the tax on tea. The Boston Tea Party followed, where patriots dressed as Native Americans threw a large shipment of tea into the Boston Harbor, setting the wheels in motion for the American Revolution.
