Get in the spirit of Halloween with this candlelit, creepy after-hours tour of Old North’s crypt and nearby Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Walk amongst the 37 tombs constructed below the floors of the Old North between 1732 and 1860 where 1100 souls were laid to rest. Learn about the construction of the crypt, view artifacts found in the crypt, and learn how and why crypts were used in colonial Boston. Then, check out Copp’s Hill, Boston’s largest colonial burying ground, dating from 1659. After getting your fill of history, fill up your glasses at a TBD bar in the North End! What’s better than boos & brews to get in the spirit of Halloween?
