After the State House we saw the Park Street Church and from there went back to the Commons for lunch.


The next stop was the Granary Burying Ground where we saw the graves of Paul Revere, Sam Adams, Peter Faneuil, John Hancock and "Mother Goose". We also saw where the 5 victims of the Boston Masacre were buried. To the right is John Hancocks burial site.

We walked by the Old Corner Bookstore, Old South Meeting House and then had a wonderful time at Old State House. We stood on the site of the Boston Massacre and then traveled on by Faneuil Hall to The Paul Revere House where we are all sitting in front of.
