In 1742, Faneuil Hall was built as a gift to the city of Boston by one of its wealthiest merchants, Peter Faneuil. The Hall became famous for hosting famous speakers like Oliver Wendell Holmes and Samuel Adams. With hopes of accommodating more merchants, businesses and shoppers, Quincy Market was built in 1826.
