A riddle, 1847-1947.

I have four faces, but when I was born I had no face at all.
I am an icon, but what I represent has changed with the years.
I am a landmark, but I cannot be seen from any vantage point.

I have four courts but only one remains.
I have three bells named after Christian saints and
I have been shot at dawn.

I have been a stage.
I have been a roundabout.
I am central.

Boys went unfed, staff unpaid, beds unbought, to pay for me.
I am the oldest.
I was the first.
