Invest In Old North

The enduring fame of the Old North Church began on the evening of April 18, 1775, when the church sexton Robert Newman and vestryman Capt. John Pulling, Jr. climbed the steeple 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. This fateful event ignited the American Revolution.


Due to COVID-19, we closed our site to visitors for four months that represent our busiest time in other years. As a result, we face a critical funding shortfall that challenges our ability to continue the programming, visitor experience, and preservation that this national historic site deserves.

We invite you to join the effort to preserve the history, legacy, and campus of Old North Church for generations to come.


Established in 1991, The Old North Foundation of Boston is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is responsible for historic site operations and interpretative, educational, and preservation programs at the iconic Old North Historic Site.
