These events are happening nearby:
- 0.45 miles SE - Faneuil Hall / Faneuil Hall / Daily / This old market building, first built in 1742, sits at the site of the old town dock. Town meetings, held here between 1764 and 1774, heard Samuel Adams and others lead cries of protest against the imposition of taxes on the colonies. The building was enlarged in 1806. Frederick Douglass, William Lloyd Garrison, and Lucy Stone brought their struggles for freedom here in the 19th century. Market stalls on the first floor service shoppers much as they did in Paul Revere's day.
- 0.46 miles SW - Guided Tours of African Meeting House / African Meeting House / Daily Except Sundays / Walk in the footsteps of Frederick Douglass, William Lloyd Garrison, Maria Stewart and all the abolitionist leaders who helped bring an end to slavery in this country.
