Statue of Samuel Adams in front of Faneuil Hall
Faneuil Hall was originally designed in 1740 by John Smibert. The brick, two story building in Georgian Style was funded by a wealthy French merchant, Peter Faneuil, who donated it to Boston. The building was completed in 1742, but burnt to the ground only 19 years later. It was rebuilt following the original design in 1763.
The first floor of the Faneuil Hall served as a market place, the second floor contained a large meeting hall which was first used for town meetings in 1764. This is where Samuel Adams and fellow revolutionary colonists gathered and protested the 'taxation without representation'. The many meetings held by American patriots between 1764 and 1774 gave Faneuil Hall the nickname 'Cradle of Liberty.
It is right behind Faneuil Hall at harbor's edge at the town clock. It served as expanding market place as an indoor pavilion of vendor stalls.
