Faneuil Hall


Known as America's "Cradle of Liberty" Faneuil Hall was a central location for organized protests against British tyranny prior to

the American Revolution.  Given to Boston in 1742 by Peter Faneuil and designed by the painter John Smibert, it was enlarged by

Charles Bulfinch in 1805.  The Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company had been headquartered on the top floor since 1746.


Following English custom, a public meeting hall still sits atop a marketplace.  Shem Drowne's grasshopper weathervane is derived

from London's Royale Exchange.
