THE FOUR ANGELS OF OLD NORTH CHURCH
OLD NORTH CHURCH PEW
Representation of a typical pew owned by a family in the 1750s. Pews are still privately owned but religious services today are much shorter in length than in 1754 so today's pews are not as "decked out" as in the past.
FOUNTAIN AND COURTYARD
Fountain behind Old North Church, Boston.
Statue depicting the famous ride of Paul Revere on the night of April 18, 1775 to warn of the movement of British troops. Paul was one of three riders that night and would not have cried: "The British are coming!" because colonists were still British citizens. He would have cried: " The Regulars are coming!" Paul Revere was captured between Lexington and Concod on his famous ride but due to circumstances, he was freed.
Paul Revere home.
Windows in the Paul Revere house.
One of the many parks in Boston enjoyed by the people of the city.
Built by a returning sea captain who was the younger of two sons whose older brother had used all the inheritance to build himself a grand home on Boston's North End. So, this younger brother built his home in front of his brother's house to block his view.
Paul Revere was NOT a member of the congregation of Old North Church but his son, Joseph, married an English girl and they became members.
