Owner description: 300 Years of History. 2 Lanterns. 1 Revolution. Hear the story of Paul Revere’s ride and discover the church where the two famous signal lanterns were hung, launching the American Revolution! Go behind the scenes and tour the bell ringing chamber and crypt. Taste colonial chocolate at a Captain Jackson’s Historic Chocolate Shop and see the words of freedom come to life on an 18th century printing press at the Printing Office of Edes & Gill. Step into history when you visit Old North!

So interesting and our speaker did a great job of explaining the historical significance and also several fun/little known facts. Very cool to get to sit in the actual "box pews." Admission is free, but they ask for a donation; which I think is a great way to do it. A must stop on the freedom trail.

Hard to imagine sitting in those pews for long Sunday services with the entire family. Church appears to be in great condition and a real piece of Revolutionary War history - worth the visit.

An interesting event in U.S. history happened here- but unfortunately the wooden spire where it happened has had to be rebuilt- but the interior "pew booths" of the church are also quite interesting.

Love visiting Old North Church - my kids love seeing something in person that they've learned about. Wish we could see the bell tower without having to pay extra for a special tour. Going inside church is free, but they ask for a $1 donation.

This is the church where they hung the lanterns-one if by land, two if by sea. Very cool and the historians are wonderful narrators. On the freedom trail.
