One of the nation's most important colonial sites, Old South Meeting House still stands in the heart of bustling downtown Boston today, open to the public daily as a historic site and museum. Old South Meeting House was a favorite stage in Boston's drama of revolution, the place where colonists gathered time after time to challenge British rule in the years leading to the American Revolution. It is the place where unprecedented numbers of attendees from all walks of life engaged in debate and dialogue that would change the fate of a nation. These gatherings were larger and more inclusive meetings than were ever held in the colony, earning the building a reputation as the hotbed of rebellion. Old South Meeting House is the place where, meeting by meeting, vote by vote, a revolution began.
