Join us for a Holiday Open House- A Tea Party Celebration! A hotbed of rebellion, Old South Meeting House is the place where over 5,000 colonists gathered in 1773 to protest the tax on tea... and started a revolution with the Boston Tea Party. Celebrate the history and legacy of this “dissenting meeting house” at our Holiday Open House. Meet colonial characters, enjoy a cup of tea, play colonial games, and discover if you would have been a Patriot or a Loyalist in 1773.
