OLD STATE HOUSE

Dwarfed by contemporary office towers, the Old State House stands in stark witness to the earlier roots of New England’s enterprising prowess.

Boston is a rich and varied destination – the Hub of New England, or the Universe, as they used to say. Living a little more than an hour to the north, we’re well within its orb.
