Boston Tea Party Debate On the anniversary of the Boston Tea Party, re-enactors and observers recreated the debate that took place in the Old South Meeting House, blocks away from Griffin’s Wharf. On December 16, 1773 thousands of Massachusetts colonists gathered at Old South Meeting House in Boston to discuss a shipment of tea that had recently arrived in port from Britain.

After the debate, colonists marched to Griffin’s Wharf and dumped the tea into Boston Harbor. close
