This is the spot where the famous signal warned residents of Cambridge that the British were approaching by sea with two of Paul Revere's lanterns on the night of April 18, 1775. The oldest church building in Boston, Old North Church still remains an active Episcopal church. Allowing visitors not only the chance to tour the site, but even attend mass if they so choose. Designed by William Price from a study of Christopher Wren's London churches, you'll find private benches boxed in with family names that help paint a picture of the past. An excellent museum is hidden in the back of the gift shop next door.
