For more than 30 years the tallest building on the Boston skyline, the Custom House is a tangible reminder of the importance of the sea in the city's economy and history.
Here duties were collected and maritime business conducted as Boston clipper ships circled the world.

The 1847 Greek Revival structure with monolithic Quincy granite columns was designed by Ammi Burnham Young.
In 1915 it was surmounted by Peabody & Stearns' 495 foot Classical Revival-style tower.
