North Square is located in Boston’s North End at the intersection of Moon, Prince, North, Garden Court, and Sun Court Streets. North Square in Boston’s North End has always been steeped in history. Until the great fire in 1676, it was the site of the original Old North Meeting House and the home of Increase Mather, the head of Harvard College and pastor of the church. On one side, the home of Paul Revere, built in 1680, sits, and on the other, the home of Lieutenant Governor Thomas Hutchinson, destroyed by a mob in 1765, once stood. Since the 1950s, the square has been a part of the Freedom Trail, and it was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1961, officially recognizing its significance. Over the years, the square has been tastefully restored to make it more accessible, informative, and clean.
