What a beautiful building! It's amazing that it is still an active, working church ... without air conditioning!

This is a great place to stop on the historical trail walk. The church is very interesting and the surrounding gardens are very well maintained.

We're so glad that your family enjoyed your visit to the Old North Church & Historic Site - including Captain Jackson's Historic Chocolate in the Clough House! We agree that the colonial chocolate making process is a must-see!

in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
