BOSTON (WHDH) - Boston’s oldest surviving church opened its doors to visitors on Saturday to help celebrate Independence Day.

The Old North Church held a family-friendly event, featuring the MIT Guild of Bellringers, patriotic music, and a dramatic reading of “Paul Revere’s Ride” by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

The church is where the famous lanterns were shown “one if by land and two if by sea” to start Revere’s ride.
