BOSTON NATIONAL HISTORIC PARK
The Boston National Historical Park is an association of sites that showcase Boston‘s role in the American Revolution. It was designated a national park on October 1, 1974. Seven of the eight sites are connected by the Freedom Trail, a walking tour of downtown Boston. All eight properties are National Historic Landmarks. Five of the sites that make up the park are neither owned nor operated by the National Park Service, and operate through cooperative agreements established upon the park’s creation.
