OLD NORTH CHURCH

Free­dom Trail at­trac­tion. Built in 1723, Old North is Bos­ton’s old­est church build­ing. While it played a piv­otal role at the on­set of the Amer­i­can Rev­o­lu­tion, it is in­ter­est­ing to note that at the time the church was highly Loy­al­ist. Its bells, which still ring, are the old­est church bells in North Amer­ica. Learn more on in-depth “Be­hind the Scenes” tours that visit the steeple and the crypt, of­fered daily ($3-5).
