Join the Old North Church & Historic Site for the 2019 Lantern Ceremony!
Sunday, April 14

5:30 pm: sponsor reception

7:00 pm: ceremony

 

 

Two men acting under the orders of Paul Revere snuck into the Old North Church late at night, climbed up Boston’s tallest steeple, and hung two lanterns. Their act of defiance against military occupation and monarchical rule ushered in the start of the American Revolutionary War. Ever since the 1875 centennial anniversary of the lantern hanging Old North has invited guests and community leaders to participate in a ceremony honoring the patriots who made that midnight ride possible.
 

This year, Old North once again invites you to come and relive the night that launched the revolution!

The theme of this year’s ceremony will be “community and courage." The keynote speaker is Attorney General Maura Healey, the chief lawyer and law enforcement officer of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The ceremony will feature colonial militia and re-enactors, a reading of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s beloved poem, “Paul Revere’s Ride,” and the lighting of two lanterns atop Old North’s steeple.

Tickets to this event are limited, so reserve your spot today!
