History Channel crew filming outside the Old State House for "Save Our History" series

Roundup: Pop Culture & the Arts ... Movies, Documentaries and Museum Exhibits

The History Channel's Emmy Award-winning series, "Save our History" traveled to Massachusetts to produce "Revolution in Boston," which explores the Old State House as well as the African Meeting House as both undergo preservation procedures.

Built in 1713, the Old State House accommodated the government offices of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, and when fervor to oppose the British crown was stirred, hosted speeches and stirring debates by patriots. In July 1776, the Declaration of Independence was first announced to the citizens of Boston from the building's balcony. Today, the building is owned by the city and operated by the Bostonian Society, perhaps the city's top historical group.
