  • There is a brass plaque set in the concrete on a corner, the actual site is in the middle of a very busy intersection. 
  • It's impressive in the middle of the crowded downtown area. A site with a lot of history, a must stop when you walking by. 
  • This is in the middle of a very busy intersection. Not much around it. And not to much information given there either. Nice little stop though on the freedom trail.

  • 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.
