"The Old North Church is officially known as Christ Church in the City of Boston. It was built in 1723, and is the oldest standing church building in Boston. In 1775, on the eve of Revolution, the majority of the congregation were loyal to the British King and many held official positions in the royal government, including the Royal Governor of Massachusetts, making Robert Newman's loyalty to the Patriot cause even more extraordinary. The King gave the Old North its silver that was used at services and a bible."

Next excursion...Salem, Massachusetts
We visited the Salem Witch Museum and the Burial Grounds. Highlighted was the Witch Memorial. The rain made it difficult to walk and explore the grounds as I had intended to do. I guess we will just have to plan another trip to Salem in the future!
Next destination...Portland, Maine
