300 Years. Two Lanterns. One Revolution.
The enduring fame of Old North began on the evening of April 18, 1775, when church sexton Robert Newman and Vestryman Capt. John Pulling, Jr. climbed the steeple of Old North Church 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. This fateful event ignited the American Revolution. Old North Church is Boston’s oldest surviving church building and welcomes 150,000 visitors each year as one of the Freedom Trail’s most visited historical sites.
The Old North Foundation (ONF) inspires active citizenship and courageous, compassionate leadership by interpreting and preserving the Old North Church & Historic Site. The Foundation serves a wide audience by creating meaningful experiences through educational outreach, site-specific programming, and historical analysis. The Old North Foundation of Boston, Inc. was established in 1991 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization independent of Christ Church in the City of Boston (the Episcopal congregation of Old North Church).
