Old Town Feels the History

History of Boston






Boston is a very important place for American independence.
In the 17th century, Puritan immigrated from England to the New England region of the United States in search of freedom of religion.

Puritan is a Christian sect who has a simple lifestyle and a strict sense of morality, and refers to British people who are dissatisfied with form-only religious practices.
Puritan came to the United States on a ship called Mayflower in search of a new world.
In 1620, the Mayflower arrives at the port of Plymouth, 30 miles southeast of Boston.
In 1630, Puritan built Boston, which became an important port.

Britain fought repeatedly with France to protect colonies such as Boston and New York.
Britain wins the war, but it costs a lot of money.
So Britain puts all taxes on colonies to cover war costs.
That tax causes strong dissatisfaction with colonists.
This heavy tax was one of the factors that led to the independence movement.

British soldiers were sent in 1768 to maintain Boston's order.
Finally, in 1770, a collision between British soldiers and Boston citizens occurred.
The Boston Massacre is said to have killed five citizens.
This was the first bloodshed that led to the American Revolution.

Boston is full of historic sites from the colonial era and the Revolutionary War.
The Freedom Trail is one of those paths that trace historic sites throughout Boston, including the Boston Massacre.

Boston is one of the oldest towns in the United States, with old red brick buildings and cobblestones still alive, giving it a very archaic impression.


Harvard University






Boston is home to some of the most prestigious universities in the United States.
Harvard's educational goal in the 17th century was to raise ministers for the Puritans.
Harvard University was founded in 1636 before American independence.

Fanuel Hall Marketplace






Fanuel Hall is one of the historic sites of the Freedom Trail, a building that resembles an old meetinghouse.
Behind this hall are three buildings, Quincy Market, South Market and North Market, which house various stores.
These stores are collectively known as Fanuel Hall Marketplace.

There are many good restaurants, so it's a good idea to try clam chowder in the birthplace.
Clam Chowder, the birthplace of the New England region on the east coast of the United States, is a white cream soup based on milk, called Boston Clam Chowder.
On the other hand, New York-style clam chowder, called Manhattan Clam Chowder, is based on tomato soup.
On weekends, street performers perform a variety of performances and have a good time.
