A FREE one hour historical tour of the architecture, politics, and geography of Quincy’s Market. Come hear this Boston story!
Take a step back in time with Linda Perlman who leads free tours of historic Quincy Market at Faneuil Hall Marketplace throughout the year.
A walk with her through Quincy Market will bring you back to the late 1700’s/early 1800’s when the population of the city of Boston was exploding and Faneuil Hall, built by the French Huguenot Peter Faneuil, was host to food merchants in pushcarts that were trying to keep up with the increased demand. When Mayor Josiah Quincy took office, he vowed to establish a public market where both bluebloods and longshoremen could buy their food. In 1826, the market was open in the spectacular Greek Revival-style structure to reflect the connection to the world’s first democracy to the modern day Boston.
