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. « less

We stopped in to see the Old North Church while in the North End. Very interesting history, with the Paul Revere ride and all. For a small donation ($ 3) you get a sticker to wear on your shirt which entitles you to a 10% discount in the gift shop next door where there are also bathrooms located around the... More

An amazing part of history, it's a must see if you're in Boston. Plus it's in the North End. See this along with Paul Revere's house.

One of my favorite stops on the Freedom Trail. Stay for the short lecture and you will learn things you didn't know about the church and the Paul Revere story. Then go visit Paul Revere's house!

The church is important in the US history and has been preserved well. Staff gives good talks about the role of the church and its parishioners. Quite an afternoon to walk in the footsteps of such important characters. There is not a fee proper, but there is a recommended donation that we gladly gave as this definitely needs to be... More

Everyone has heard the famous poem so it is always special to actually see the church and steeple where Paul Revere gave that message. Our grandsons enjoyed the inside of the church with all the small compartments for the families attending services.

The church is on the trail so you don't have to worry about finding it. There are many sites worth seeing. If your in Boston for a short time and can only do one thing, take an afternoon and at least walk the Freedom Trail.

You hear so much about Old North Church and it is nice to see but once you've seen it that is pretty much all.
