  • A circle of stones marks the spot where the British soldiers killed five men who were part of a crowd protesting against the British occupation in Boston. The shooting took place on March 5 1770 and the Patriots soon named the event as "the Boston Massacre".

  • One of my favorites on the trail! It was such a feeling to stand where so much history has taken place! We even bought some tea that was pushed into the harbor all those years ago!
  • This is a must-visit if talking the Freedom Trail. It's also fairly easy to miss, if you don't look down and see the marker. The Boston Massacre carries significant historical importance because of the events just prior to the American Revolution. The events here would shape the next several years and eventually involve founding fathers Paul Revere and John Adams.
  • Great if you love history, a good photo opp if you're in the vivacity, just a plaque in the ground if you don't go for those sorts of things.
  • Loved this location and the whole city for that matter. Lots of history and nostalgia in this locale.
  • Good massacre site.
