Faneuil Hall Marketplace & Quincy Market
We trace the original shoreline and discuss the building of Faneuil Hall. It was originally only to be a public market where no one could have foreseen that within its walls would be heard the shout for American Independence.
By the early 1800's Boston would require a larger market. We'll discuss how Qunicy Market was built and the remarkable health improvements the new construction provided. This historic landmark narrowly avoided demolition in the 1960's and the concept of a festival marketplace redevelopment was born.
Though December 2018, meet 11:00am
Saturday mornings at the Quincy Market West entrance, South Market Street by Anthem Restaurant. Please wear comfortable shoes.
Rain, snow or shine.
