Photo of the Week – September 12, 2012

Even longtime Bostonians can have a difficult time knowing every historical spot in the city… mainly because there are just so damn many of them, amirite?

This week’s photo is of the Old South Meeting Hall, located in Downtown Crossing, which is most famously known as the building that hosted the planning of the Boston Tea Party.  In addition to being a Revolutionary meeting space, it existed as a church for almost 150 years, and congregants included Samuel Adams, William Dawes, and Benjamin Frankiln.  Now when you reach the intersection of Washington and Milk, you can preach its vibrant history loudly on the street to complete strangers!

Or, you know, just go check out the cool museum they have on site.
