In a city as steeped in history as Boston, it’s not surprising that if you visit Boston Attractions like the Old North Church that you’ll be walking in places that witnessed the birth of a nation.

About the Old North Church:
The Old North Church was completed in 1723, and it is the oldest church in Boston that is still in existence. During the time leading up to the Revolution, this church, like many others, was used for much more than Sunday morning sermons. It was also used as a meeting place for men like Paul Revere and other Sons of Liberty who gathered to decide when enough was enough.

As the Patriots stood watch in Charlestown during the dawn of Revolution, lanterns were hung here, as directed by Paul Revere, to let those Patriots know if the British would be coming by land or by sea. Today, visitors can tour this Boston Attraction and walk in the footsteps of great Patriots like Revere.

When you enter the church you’ll be seated in a box pew where, perhaps, Revere sat with his family during a Sunday morning service. An educator will give a short presentation about the history of the building and about the historically important events that took place here.

While the general tour is quite nice, the behind-the-scenes tour provides access to two parts of the Church that other visitors will not see: the bell tower and the crypt. This tour is a must for anyone who interested in history or architecture. While inside the church, note the bust of George Washington that is on display. Some contemporaries of Washington, including the Marquis de Lafayette, felt this was the best likeness of him that they had ever seen.

Whether you are most interested in history or architecture, a visit to this important National Historic Landmark is not to be missed. Consider adding a stop to the Old North Church to your itinerary during your next stay at The Boston Park Plaza Hotel – A Boston Hotel.
