About this Organization:

300 Years. Two Lanterns. One Revolution.


The Old North Church, built in 1723, is famous for the two signal lanterns hung in its steeple at the instruction of Paul Revere. Those two lanterns sparked the American Revolution.


The Old North Church & Historic Site is located in the heart of Boston’s North End and includes the iconic church, the colonial-era Clough House, several gardens and courtyards, and a gift shop. The Old North Foundation manages the site and is responsible for preservation and educational programming. Each year, hundreds of thousands of visitors step into three hundred years of history at Old North while walking the Freedom Trail.
