Revolutionary Spaces is rethinking the ways in which we commemorate major historical events as we celebrate the 250th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party this year. In addition to an exciting new exhibit at the Old State House, we will be hosting a slate of diverse public programs centered around the Old South Meeting House—culminating in a grand scale reenactment of the Meeting of the Body of the People on December 16, 2023.
