Located in the heart of Boston is the Old State House, the oldest surviving public building in the city. It was built in 1713 to house the government offices of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. The Old State House plays a major role in the history of our country. The area beneath the balcony on the east side of the building was the site of the Boston Massacre on March 5, 1770. On July 18, 1776 the Declaration of Independence was first proclaimed from that same balcony. Today, the Old State House holds museum and is a major transportation connection point, as it sits above the State Street station on the MBTA’s Blue and Orange subway lines. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1966 and is part of the Freedom Trail.
