The Old North Church May 29, 2010
Built in 1723 the Old North Church is the oldest active church building in Boston, and is a National Historic Landmark along the Freedom Trail in Boston. It is famous for being the site where Paul Revere had his patriots hang lanterns to help send warning to nearby Lexington and Concord of the movement of the British troops on April 18, 1775 shortly after 10 pm. “One if by Land, Two if by Sea” has become a well known memory of that time. And although the lanterns were only displayed for a minute or so it was enough time to get the message out. Paul Revere was not alone in his ride to warn the citizens in the nearby townships. William Dawes and several others rode out into the surrounding communities to spread the word. The steeple at 191 feet tall was the perfect spot from which to send the message by lantern because it was the highest point in Boston and could be seen for a great distance.
