Description 

Quincy Market is of major architectural significance for three reasons. First, it is a notable example of a large public market house constructed in the Greek Revival style. Secondly, it illustrates one of the major structural innovations of the period. Third, this was one of the most impressive and large-scale urban developments in the United States during the first half of the 19th century. -- Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS MA-1166)
