About this Organization:

300 Years. Two Lanterns. One Revolution.

The enduring fame of Old North Church began on the evening of April 18, 1775, when church sexton Robert Newman and Vestryman Capt. John Pulling, Jr. climbed the steeple of Old North Church 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. Old North Church is Boston’s oldest surviving church building and welcomes over 150,000 visitors each year as one of the Freedom Trail’s most visited historical sites.

Old North Illuminated (ONI) inspires active citizenship and courageous, compassionate leadership by interpreting and preserving the Old North Church & Historic Site. ONI serves a wide audience by creating meaningful experiences through educational outreach, site-specific programming, and historical analysis. Old North Illuminated (formerly Old North Foundation of Boston, Inc) was established in 1991 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization independent of Christ Church in the City of Boston (the Episcopal congregation of Old North Church).

Old North Illuminated believes that:

  • Bravery, patriotism, and active citizenship come in many forms. These acts can inspire both large-scale and local change.

  • Education and respectful dialogue are key to building a more perfect union that reflects the promise of liberty and justice for all.

  • Becoming an anti-racist organization will require active engagement with the legacy of slavery at Old North Church and the ongoing burdens of slavery and racism in our country.

  • By preserving and sharing history, space, and stories, we shape our future.
