Freedom Trail à Boston


Freedom Trail

The Freedom Trail is a 2.5-mile-long path that winds through Boston's historic districts, following in the footsteps of some of America's most prominent colonial figures. The trail links 16 historically significant sites, offering visitors a chance to immerse themselves in the nation's history. The trail begins at the Boston Common, America's oldest park. From there, the trail leads visitors to the Massachusetts State House, where they can see the office of the governor and the Senate and House of Representatives chambers. Next, the trail takes visitors to the Park Street Church, which was a gathering place for some of the country's earliest abolitionists.

Visitors to the Freedom Trail can also see such historically important sites as the Granary Burying Ground, where many of America's founding fathers are buried; the Old North Church, where Paul Revere hung a signal lantern to alert patriots of the British troop movements; and the Paul Revere House, Revere's home from 1770 to 1800. Other stops along the trail include Faneuil Hall, the Old South Meeting House, and the USS Constitution Museum. Throughout the Freedom Trail, visitors will encounter plaques, markers, and statues commemorating key historical events and individuals. An interesting fact is that Bostonians have preserved many of the landmarks on the Freedom Trail with incredible attention to detail. This means that visitors can experience places like Paul Revere's home and the Old North Church almost exactly as they were when the country was founded.
