The History of The Old North Church
Christ Church, better known as The Old North Church, is an Episcopal congregation founded in 1722. It played a pivotal role in the beginning of the American Revolution.
One if by land, two if by sea
According to the website The Old North Foundation, on the evening of April 18, 1775, church sexton, Robert Newman, and Vestryman Capt. 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.
Old Church is Boston’s oldest surviving church building and most visited historical site. Each year, a half a million visitors make the trip to Boston to experience this unique and stirring monument to liberty.
