“be sure to ask about the guided tour”
Reviewed May 14, 2011

To be honest, if you don't do the guided tour to the crypt and the bell tower, this church is just like many of the others in town--historic, beautiful, but no different. You have to ASK about the guided tour (there is an extra cost) but it is a very cool experience to get to go down into the crypt to hear about the people buried there (and some general church history) as well as go up in the bell tower to see/touch the last bell that Paul Revere made!

(*this tour would not be for anyone with mobility issues as there is loose brick in the crypt and steep, narrow wooden stairs to the bell tower)
