Established in 1964, the Freedom Trail® Foundation is the official non-profit organization charged to market, promote, and help to preserve the Freedom Trail through tourist services and activities, 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 supports preservation, rehabilitation, and capital projects for Freedom Trail sites to 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 is a nationally recognized brand and draws over 4 million people to Boston and the region each year and impacts of over $2 billion in spending in the state.
