Site of the Boston Massacre
Boston, MA 02109
The intersection of Devonshire and State Street is a significant location in Boston history. In 1770, an armed collision between the British army and the colonists leading to the loss of lives further provoked the American Revolution. A circular pattern of cobblestones outside the Old State House
commemorates these fallen men. Take the Freedom Trail
for a glimpse of this tragic incident and other iconic events.
