Step into history when you visit Old North! Built in 1723, the Old North Church is the oldest surviving church building in the City of Boston. Old North’s enduring fame began on the night of April 18, 1775, when two signal lanterns were hung in the church’s steeple as a signal from Paul Revere that the British were marching to Lexington and Concord “by sea” across the Charles River and not land, launching the American Revolution.

Old North was further immortalized in Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s poem, “Paul Revere’s Ride.” Today, Old North Church & Historic Site encompasses the famous 18th century church, five gardens and the Old North Gift Shop, which was formally a chapel for Italian Protestant immigrants living in the North End.

Visitors to Old North Church can immerse themselves in the true story behind Paul Revere’s ride, learn about notable congregants, sit in the church’s unique box pews, and see a bust of George Washington that the Marquis de Lafayette praised for its accuracy.

For an additional $5 (paid on site), visitors can take a guided tour of Old North’s historic crypt. Guests will learn about the burial practices of early congregants and hear stories about some of the people who have rested beneath the church for hundreds of years.
