The signal from the steeple of Boston's oldest church triggered the War for Independence that led to the birth of America. On that fateful night in 1775, the two lanterns in the steeple told Paul Revere that the British were approaching by boat, not on foot.

This is a beautiful church and the Revere family still own a seating box. It's amazing how something as old as it is can give a person goose bumps. I highly recommend visiting.

Lovely and historic church with pews surrounded in white panels. Our founding fathers worshipped here and the lantern was hung here. Must see

With the existence of the brick walks, it gives you a feeling of still being in that time period that you can almost hear the clip clop of the horses passing by.

A must go if you are visiting Boston and walking around Faneuil Hall. Plenty of history about the beginnings of this great city and events that follow after. Check it out!

The focal point of Paul Revere and the two other men who warned of the British arrival that led to the first battles of the American Revolution. The site is crowded into narrow streets which makes it hard to photograph. But the interior is beautiful and restored. Take the time to enjoy the history. There is a store with souvenirs... More

This is a great part of American history. It is an easy walk on the Freedom Trail, we are so glad that we stopped in to see it.

This is a beautiful church in the heart of the north end. Was disappointed in the charge for entering the church considering what it gave you access to. I would've gladly donated to the facility after touring but felt forced to pay for an unknown experience. Neat to experience a part of our US history though

The Old North Church itself is quite interesting, definitely see the pews and lantern inside. But in visiting the church I look at a collective experience. First, entering the absolutely fabulous North End and it's sights, smells and tastes. Secondly, the awesome photo ops of the iconic Revere statue against the church and the chocolate store en route. Lastly, the... More

Staying in North End

Neighborhood Profile
North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
