The Official Old North Church

The enduring fame of the Old North began on the evening of April 18, 1775, when the church sexton, Robert Newman, 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 and not by land. This fateful event ignited the American Revolution.

The Old North Foundation interprets and preserves the history of the Old North Church, made famous by Longfellow's poem "Paul Revere's Ride."

Today the Old North Foundation, a secular, not-for-profit organization, is devoted to the preservation of Old North and to creating educational and interpretive programs for students and visitors. The Foundation has embarked on a master planning process to restore the church and transform the entire campus into an interactive learning environment.
