On October 16th at 1:00pm, Old South Meeting House will host a celebration to commemorate the raising of an
historic bell, made by Paul Revere in 1801, to its clock tower. Old South Meeting House, the famed place where the Boston Tea Party began, has not had a bell in its clock tower since 1876. The bell raising ceremony will take place on the plaza across the street from Old South Meeting House and is free and open to the public. The celebration will include performances by Old South Church Choir, Boston Children’s Chorus, the Landmark’s Orchestra Brass Ensemble, and the Back Bay Bell Ringers. At 2:00pm as the bell is hoisted by a crane up to the clock tower, church bells throughout Boston will chime in unison in a city-wide salute to mark the special occasion.
