New Bunker Hill Climbing Pass
From April 8 to June 30, for safe occupancy requirements, all visitors who climb the Bunker Hill Monument must first obtain a free climbing pass from the Bunker Hill Museum at 43 Monument Square. For groups of 10 or more, please call 617-242-5689.
Most of the sites in our park are located on the Freedom Trail. Through time, national patriotism and search for American identity have turned sites such as Old North Church, USS Constitution and Bunker Hill Monument into icons.
It is the power of place, when one stands upon these grounds, that makes us realize the importance of these history-making events. It is humbling to stand in the room where Frederick Douglass spoke, or on the soil where over 5,000 men fought in the bloodiest battle of the American Revolution. You, too, can visit the place where George Washington and his army witnessed its first victory.
These historical icons inspire not only Americans, but people around the world, as their themes resonate for all of humanity.

The request to reserve Faneuil Hall on December 16, 1873, identified the event as a celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party. In truth, Suffragette Lucy Stone held the first women's suffragette meeting in the "Cradle of Liberty." She surprised many with her real agenda that day.
