Established in 1964, the Freedom Trail® Foundation markets, promotes, and helps to preserve the Freedom Trail through visitor services and programs, educational programs, and marketing and public relations efforts.  Marked by a red line on city walkways, Boston’s iconic 2.5-mile Freedom Trail connects 16 of America’s most significant historical landmarks.  The Foundation’s Preservation Fund helps support preservation, rehabilitation, and capital projects for official Freedom Trail historic sites; these projects help avoid, minimize, or mitigate adverse effects of the elements and manmade wear and tear of Boston’s precious 17th-, 18th-, and 19th-century sites.  

The Freedom Trail Foundation recognizes the suffering people have endured due to racism throughout this country’s history, and we denounce racial injustices in Boston and America. The Freedom Trail has and will continue to acknowledge and interpret the invaluable contributions of Black Americans throughout history via current and future exhibits and programming. We strive to promote the rich, yet complicated, history along the Freedom Trail in efforts to help educate and create positive change in our communities.

The Foundation's Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility Iniative released a Request for Proposals for an organizational assessment on June 25, 2021.  Proposals are due on July 30, 2021.  For information on how to submit a proposal, please e-mail staylor@thefreedomtrail.org.
