Old North Church

Old North ChurchThe Old North Church is located in Boston, Massachusetts. The location began its fame on the evening of April 18, 1775, when the church sexton Robert Newman, and Vestryman Captain John Pulling, jr. 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 across the Charles River and not by land. The church was founded in 1722. This historic site is the most visited in the city of Boston.
