Step back in time and take one of the Quincy Market History Tours at Faneuil Hall Marketplace to learn about Quincy Market’s central and ever-evolving role in Boston’s history. Discover how Quincy Market was built over the Boston Harbor, and explore Alexander Parris’s thoughtful architectural design. Delve into the political maneuvering behind the market’s creation, and understand the market’s importance in establishing Boston as an international trading center. At the time, building Quincy Market was the largest public works project of its kind.
The tour runs Sundays at 2pm beginning Memorial Day weekend and ending in October. You can meet the guide by Pulse Cafe on South Market Street.
