By imposing taxes and oppressive policies on the American colonies, the British Parliament threatened their traditions of self-government and Bostonians defied them.

Join a National Park Service Ranger for a free 60 minute walk focusing on Faneuil Hall, the Old State House, the Boston Massacre Site, and the Old South Meeting House. Along the Freedom Trail®, discover how Bostonians resisted these repressive strategies.

The tour is limited to 30 people, and tickets are handed out on a first come, first served basis beginning 30 minutes prior to the tour time. Tours begin inside the Faneuil Hall Visitor Center and end at Old South Meeting House.
