Street Medallion

Street medallion on the Freedom Trail in front of the Omni Parker House. It reads:
Friend --
Look up and see the North Church tower
where were shown two lantern lights
on the night of April 17, 1775
to send Paul Revere on his
ride and begin
The American Revolution.
This view preserved for
all future generations by
Charles Hilgenhurst and colleagues
of the Boston Redevelopment Authority
in the year 1960
