Old North Church

  • 193 Salem Street Boston, MA, 02113 United States

Built in 1723, the Old North Church was inspired by the works of Christopher Wren, the British architect who was responsible for rebuilding London after the Great Fire. It is the oldest standing church building in Boston and is a National Historic Landmark. The Old North is still an active Episcopal congregation and one of the most visited historic sites in Boston. Step back in time and sit in the same box pews owned by colonial congregants, and find out how the signal lanterns from Paul Revere—“one if by land, two if by sea”—ignited the American Revolution. 

First-come, first-served interactive tours at 6pm on Saturday and Sunday will examine the church's architecture and fine art objects. Space is limited.
