Faneuil Hall 
   I took these pictures July 2nd.  Too bad the cherry picker was in the picture but the city is setting up for the July 4th. celebrations.
   Since 1742, Faneuil Hall has served as a public marketplace and meeting hall for the town of Boston. It is the site of numerous famous speeches over the years from such freedom seekers as Samuel Adams, Frederick Douglas, and Lucy Stone. Now run by Boston National Historical Park, it serves as the start of the Freedom Trail and street level market stalls still operate much as they would have in 1812. Summer Scholars will visit the Great Hall of Faneuil Hall to take part in a town meeting to debate the declaration of war in 1812.
