Description

Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market, historic Boston landmarks of food, retail, and social discourse, fell into disrepair in the mid 1900s. The buildings were tagged for demolition until concerned residents banded together to save them in the early 1970s. The historic buildings have since been rehabilitated.
