Peter Faneuil (June 20, 1700 - March 3, 1743) was an American merchant and philanthropist born in New Rochelle. He is best known for donating Faneuil Hall to the city of Boston to serve as a marketplace.

BackgroundEdit

After his uncle's death, he inherited the majority of his fortune, becoming one of the wealthiest men in the colony.

In 1740, he offered the city of Boston a building for a marketplace, a controversial proposition at the time. It was eventually constructed in September 1742, 6 months before his death. The building became a landmark of Boston and a location for meetings protesting British control, becoming known as "The Cradle of Liberty."[1]
