Providence Tea Party – Knights Templar

Conspiracy theorists will find this a very interesting
site. The Market House used to be two stories
and was our town hall. A third story was added
to become a Masonic Temple. Look at the bronze
plaque and see that the First Order of the Knights
Templar in North America made its home here.
Boston was not the only Tea Party.
Check out the wall plaque commemorating the night
Providence colonists conspired to defy the throne and
burn tea in protest on March 5, 1776.
