Once a church, a school, and vital community meeting place, the African Meeting House has been returned to its 1855 appearance through historic restoration and is open to the public for talks and tours, our events and yours. This historic site and history museum preserves and interprets the contributions of people of African descent. It also cover those who have found common cause with them in the struggle for liberty and justice for all Americans. There are hundreds of artifacts from 19th century Boston to educate the public on the African-American legacy in New England. It is known for traveling exhibits, including the traveling photo exhibit of Frederick Douglass and the Lost Tapes of Malcolm X. Leave time to peruse the charming gift shop. This National Historic Site reminds visitors that that the Beacon Hill neighborhood is rich with black stories of old and also feels like a walk back in time.
