More in: , Massachusetts

The Old State House is a historic legislative building located at the intersection of Washington and State Streets in Boston, MA. Built in 1713, it is the oldest surviving public building in Boston, and the seat of the first elected legislature in the New World. It is one of many historic landmarks that can be visited along the Freedom Trail. It was the center of all political life and debate in colonial Boston. The Royal Governor presided here until the new State House was built on Beacon Hill in 1798. This is a piece of history not to be missed.
