Boston for me. Very important during the Revolution and many subsequent events in US history.

I would have also dded Charleston and NYC to the list, though.

I'd like to say Boston, just in the sense that it has a massive quantity of historic districs and buildings, but then yet so does Philadelphia, and Philly at once was the nation's capital. I give it a tie.

The fact that Philly was once the nation's capital tips the scale, in my opinion.

Definately Philly. Think of everything that happened there during the Revolution and the times before and after it, as opposed to everything that happened in Boston.

**Minneapolis**The community of St. Anthony on the east side of the Mississippi River near St. Anthony Falls was surveyed and platted as a townsite in 1849, the same year the territory of Minnesota was established. In 1852, President Millard Fillmore approved an act of Congress reducing the Fort Snelling reservation, thereby opening the land west of the river to settlers, although most of the settlers did not receive clear title until 1855.
