A beautiful day in Boston depicted in this photo of downtown Boston buildings featuring the Old North Church near Boston Common. While most of Boston can be referred to as historic, this particular area is of historic significance as Boston Common is on of the oldest areas in the city and was once a large pasture, home to cows, sheep and other farm animals. Today, it is a vibrant city park located in the heart of downtown Boston.
The Old North Church (pictured at left) was built in the early 1700s and is best known as the church that Paul Revere looked towards before his midnight ride. Revere was looking for a symbol that the British were coming; the symbol being either one lantern or two, hence the famous quote “One if by land, two if by sea,” referring to this particular story about Paul Revere and his midnight ride.
