Old North Church

The enduring fame of the Old North began on the night of April 18, 1775, when two lanterns were hung in its steeple by church sexton Robert Newman and vestry member Captain John Pulling, Jr. This signal, devised by Paul Revere, notified Patriots waiting in Charlestown that British troops (known as Regulars or Redcoats) were leaving Boston “by sea,” not by land, to seize rebel stores of munitions in Lexington and Concord. On horseback, the Patriot riders, including Paul Revere, then warned the people of Middlesex County of the oncoming troops. This fateful event ignited the American Revolution.

The Old North Church is officially known as Christ Church in the City of Boston. It was built in 1723 and is the oldest standing church building in Boston. The Old North boasts a rich history beyond the Revolutionary period and remains an active Episcopal congregation with services every Sunday.
