"The Revolution Starts Here!" (Old South Meeting House)

In 1876, Bostonians and citizens from across the nation fought to save Old South Meeting House from the wrecker’s ball in the first successful historic preservation effort in New England. This remarkable landmark was saved a century ago for people like you to enjoy today! Now, you are invited to step inside the beautifully restored gathering place that
was once called “the best monument you could erect to the men of the Revolution.”
