The area of land we call Boston, Massachusetts was inhabited as early as 5000 B.C.E. Although the name it carried then is lost, we do know that European settlers called the area Trimountaine until renaming it Boston in 1630.
Old North Church, the Old State House, the State House, and the Bunker Hill monument are all engraved in the spoon’s bowl. In 1723 the Old North Church was built on Salem Street. It is one of 16 sights included on the Freedom Trail. The Old State House was built in 1713, and served as a government building from that time until 1841. It too is on the Freedom Trail. The State House is the current seat of government in Boston, and as such not on the historic Freedom Trail. Lastly, the Bunker Hill monument is the last stop on the Freedom Trail. It was built to commemorate the Battle of Bunker hill and took 18 years to quarry, transport and build between 1825 and 1843.
