The State House, designed in 1798 and built on once John Hancock's Cow Pasture Land of over 2.7 acres, has today become a haven for state lawmakers, governors and senator's daily meetings. Visitors always get thrilled at the sight of the 217 feet spire of the Parker Street Church sited at the "brimstone corner” a name derived from the church's involvement during the Revolutionary War in the 17th century. Granary Burying Ground was established in 1737 and serves as a cemetery for the ancient legends of Boston including Benjamin Franklin and legendary victims of the 1770 Boston massacre.
