This Georgian style building is adjacent to bustling Quincy Market, considered the social center of Boston. The city's rapid expansion in the 1800s created a need for Quincy Market, a two story, 27,000 square foot marketplace built out of New England granite. The indoor pavilion has over 100 shops, an abundance of eating establishments, and street performers that stroll through the area.
