Faneuil Hall is an historic place near the waterfront in Boston, Massachusetts. It was built in 1742. It has been a marketplace and a meeting hall. Today it is the city's Government Center. It was the site of several speeches by Samuel Adams and others encouraging independence from Great Britain. It is now part of Boston National Historical Park and a stop on the Freedom Trail. It is sometimes called "the Cradle of Liberty".
