Boston is the home to many different historical sites.

Boston is the home to many different historical sites.

If you plan to contact your moving company to schedule a date to bring your moving containers to the Boston area, it could be a fun experience to see what the city's history is like. As one of the most important locales during the early years of America's quest to become a country, the city is drenched in stories, monuments and buildings. While there are many different places and ways to learn about the Hub's history, it could be a good start to check out some of these venues.

Old State House
One of the places where the seeds were spread for the Revolutionary War was the Old State House. Located in the downtown area of Boston, it has a significant amount of history. This location was not only where the Declaration of Independence was read for the first time, but also right across the street from where the Boston Massacre took place, according to CelebrateBoston.com. It was also formerly the building that housed the British governor, before American independence. The venue is easy to get to, and is a short walk from Green, Blue and Red service on the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority's subway line.

Bunker Hill
The site of one of the first major battles of the Revolutionary War was in Charlestown, a neighborhood north of Boston. This battle is commemorated by a monument that stands taller than 220 feet, according to CBS Boston. The monument is a great way to not only experience some of the city's history, but also to get a good view of the city. If you are looking to take the MBTA to get there, it may be a good idea to get off at the Community College stop on the Orange line.

Faneuil Hall
If you are interested in seeing one of the most famous meeting areas for those who planned the Revolution, then you should go to Faneuil Hall. This is the location of many of the important meetings for Bostonians before the Revolution occurred, according to CelebrateBoston.com. It is also a stone's throw from the Old State House. If you are bringing family, inside is a sizable gift shop, or you can head next door to Quincy Market and experience a multitude of restaurants and food stands. Getting here is best through either the Green or Blue MBTA lines.

U.S.S. Constitution
One of the most important ships in the American Revolution fight is located in Boston. The U.S.S. Constitution is a permanent facet of the city's port, and it is also available for tours. According to CBS Boston, the ship, which also was used in the War of 1812, requires photo identification in order to board, as it is one of the most important monuments in American History. The best way to get to this ship and see the tour is through the Green line on the MBTA.

Paul Revere House
Another option to visit while in the city is the Paul Revere house. Located in the North End of the city, it is one of the oldest  buildings of its kind in the city. It also was restored in the early part of the 20th century, in order to make it better resemble how it was when Revere owned it, according to CelebrateBoston.com. The home was also used for a significant amount of time as a boarding home for sailors, as it has easy access to the seaport. Those who want to examine this piece of Boston history are best served traveling down the Green line on the MBTA.
