Owner description: 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.

“A MUST when visiting Boston”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

This is a must when visiting Boston. Not only do you get the full experience of a colonial church, you are convenient to the North End where you can gorge yourself on delicious Italian food. Not to be missed! It's on the Freedom Trail so you can walk by Paul Revere's house and then on to the church. Enjoy!

“Historic, small and in the right area”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Convenient to the North End where one goes to satisfy issues of the tummy. So while paying homage to the tummy, might as well pay homage to the Gods and things historic. Small lovely church, historic. Plain (no fancy stained glass windows). I guess built as a "working" church by working class families. How, in my opinion, places of worship should be.

“Quaint church with history”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Not as regal as a European cathedral, but it's a clean simple style of the church at the time of the 1700's in the New England region. Interesting history and ability to visit the bell room if you arrange to visit when they are doing those tours.

“Old North Church experience”
Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

We were here on a Sunday in mid-June. It was pretty crowded, but I'm sure it gets much worse.

Otherwise, it was very neat to see this attraction. You can go inside and sit in the pew boxes. I would def suggest this to anyone interested in our country's history.

“A step back in time”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

The Old North Church is a great stop on your Boston tour. Aside from the role it played in "The Midnight Ride," the church offers a glimpse into life in the late 1700s. Not only is the church a piece of American history, it is still a functional church with services and prayer meetings throughout the week.
