Old State House

A photo from the old town of Boston. This is Old State House on the corner of Washington Street and State Street. Built in 1713, it is one of the oldest public buildings in the U.S. and was used as the seat of the colony government until 1776 and served as the Massachusetts State House from the independence until 1798. In 1770, it was the site of the Boston Massacre, when British soldiers killed five people. Nowadays, it is surrounded by the modern city and is used as a museum and as the entrance to State subway station.
