Worth looking in while on the FT . Shares some topics with other museums and exhibits so be prepared for repetition

This is a standard historic church. Open to the public, donations appreciated. You can come in here and admire the architecture or use this place as a quiet place to think. I would recommend checking it out if you are walking on the Freedom Trail,...More

Not only is the church itself beautiful but I would highly recommend a guided tour. The past really comes to life as told by the charming and knowledgeable historians who lead the tours. They're all great but ask for Armando. He had so many little...More

Very cool to revisit someplace I haven't been since grade school! Part of the Freedom Trail and open and accessible to all to view our colonial history. Adjacent to the Olde North Church, walk up the hill to burial grounds for harbor view.

What a stunning church. No fee just donations to go in. I loved how the seats are in little cubicles. Apparently back in the day a family tithing to the church would get their own box to sit in. Don’t forget to go outside and...More
