Now a museum, Old South Meeting House served as a community home and church also during the secon half of the 18th century. 
In 1773 here was the gathering spot of 5000 outraged Boston citizens that resulted in the famous Boston Tea Party.
 A landmark in the history of the US, the building is a must see for every visitor in Boston. 
I like it very much, because, like the whole city, it has got that 18-19th century feeling.
