Built 1729. Samuel Adams, James Otis, Joseph Warren and other patriots addressed the citizens of Boston from its pulpit in 1768-1770-1773. Here in 1775 was established a riding school for the British dragoons. In 1872 to 1875 the building served as the post office. In 1876 this historic building was sold at auction, only to be followed by the demonstration of public-spirited citizens who acquired the property under the title of the Old South Association, and have since conducted it as an historical monument and a place for patriotic inspiration and instruction
