The historical stories attached to the Faneuil Hall are quite considerable as this was considered to be the place for town meetings that were held to launch protests against the imposition of unfair taxes on the colonies. It was in this location between 1764 and 1774 where Samuel Adams and others let their voices be heard above the injustice that arose at that time.

Today the Faneuil Hall forms a part of the Boston National Historic Park and also is a renowned stop on the Freedom Trail. It has earned the distinction of being 4th among the top 25 most visited tourist attractions in America in 2008 as adjudged by Forbes Travel in 2008. The 18th century saw the creation of the building where John Simibert who is an artist, developed the building in the style of an English Market. Later during the following centuries the building gained significant additions and a great deal of expansion. Today it forms part of the Faneuil Hall marketplace together with the North Market, South Market and Quincy Market. The first floor of the Faneuil Hall contains shops and eateries while the second floor holds the meeting room. The third floor holds the museum and is also the place which contains the armoury of the Ancient Artillery company of Massachusetts. Some of the Hall’s noteworthy elements include the Grasshopper weather wane that is claimed to be designed after a similar one in London. Glided with gold leaf, this copper weather wane on top of the building was designed by Deacon Shem Drowne.
