While in Little Italy, I saw the Freedom Trail and knew we were near Old North Church. Here is the statue of Paul Revere that stands behind the church before the beautiful courtyard.
I was happy to see that seeing the church, a real historical landmark, is still free. We saw tour groups coming through with guides dressed in full revolutionary garb. We stood in the church for a while and got a history lesson from a guide telling the story of Old North Church from the pulpit. This is the church where Americans hung the lanterns to tell the people if the British were coming over the ground or by the Charles River.
