Faneuil Hall

Peter Faneuil certainly gave the city of Boston a gift. In 1740, he offered at a public meeting to fund a public market house, which was a project that the public had been suggesting for years. The vote for the construction was passed unanimously, so the construction of the building began at Dock Square and they hired John Smibert to style the building as an English country market.

Faneuil Hall!
