Faneuil Hall & Quincy Market (Boston)

Faneuil Hall in Boston is famous because speeches were made there advocating independence from Great Britain.
The original building was completed in 1742 but burned to the ground. It was rebuilt in 1762, and reconstructed in 1898-1899. You can feel the history when you're there.
Nearby is Quincy Market, completed in 1826 and still in use today.
It's a popular place to get food as it's filled with small restaurants.
The dome is probably the most famous part of the building.
And that's the last of my photos from the East Coast for now, but I'm sure I'll have more at some point. In the meantime I'm sure that Our World Tuesday has other East-coast bloggers.

My grandson is a handsome lad already at five months old and I have enjoyed every moment here, but I will be SO ready to come home next Monday!!! The weather here in Dallas has been cold, wet, windy and definitely NOT like my favorite Spring!! Have a great new week!!
