One day we bought tickets for the on-again-off-again open-air bus and had a good time seeing some sights. We look eager to start, right!
This cemetery (behind the wall by the white van in the Old North Church picture) is not the oldest in Boston but with a stone from 1661 it seemed old enough to us. The girls were very interested in the markers.
The Old North Church is, of course, a must see for its history (“one if by land, two if by sea…”) but it is also a wonderful example of a period church and it is beautiful! We found a perfect pew but it didn’t have our name on it.
Behind the church is a park like area named for Paul Revere and containing a wonderful statue of him. Nearby is his home which is the oldest surviving wooden structure in Boston.
