The patriot and propagandist Samuel Adams (1722-2803) lived in a house on this site from 1784 until his death. A cousin of John Adams, Samuel Adams wrote many criticisms of the British government, advocated separation from Great Britain, and was instrumental in the organization of the Boston Tea Party. Adams was a signer of the Declaration of Independence and served as governor of Massachusetts from 1794 to 1797. He was born on nearby Purchase Street.
