Old North Church - North EndThe enduring fame of the Old North Church began on the evening of April 18, 1775, when the church sexton, Robert Newman, climbed the steeple and held high two lanterns as a signal from Paul Revere that the British were marching to Lexington and Concord by sea and not by land.

This fateful event ignited the American Revolution.

Built in 1723, it has the city's tallest steeple in Boston at 191 feet. From June to October you can tour the bell tower and the crypts.

On the second Sunday of the month, the 5 PM service features an organist and choir for young music lovers.

Other attraction that are between 7-15 minutes away include The Boston State House, The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston Public Garden, The New England Aquarium, Boston Children's Museum, Boston Tea Party Ship & Museum, The USS Constitution, and Fenway Park.
