AAA Editor Notes
Bunker Hill Monument is in Monument Square in Charlestown. Part of Boston National Historical Park, the monument—a 221-foot-tall granite obelisk on Breed's Hill—marks the site of the one of the American Revolution's first major conflicts, the Battle of Bunker Hill. The monument honors the solidarity and sacrifice of the inexperienced militia who not only changed their lives but the lives of future Americans when they fought that day. While the Patriots lost the battle, the results inflicted on the British were massive, thus giving the Colonials the confidence needed to win the Revolutionary War. The names of those soldiers are presented on four bronze tablets a few blocks away in Winthrop Square. The oft-photographed likeness of Col. William Prescott at the base of the pillar and the statue of Dr. Joseph Warren, housed in the adjacent Bunker Hill Lodge, pay tribute to two heroes from the June 17, 1775, battle.

An observation deck at the top of the monument is reached via a 294-step spiral staircase and offers a panorama of the city. Nearby, the Battle of Bunker Hill Museum presents exhibits about the battle.

Note: No elevator available. Only 20 people are allowed in the Monument at a time. The last climb is 30 minutes before closing at 4:30 p.m. Open Fri.-Sun.; extended hours in winter and spring. The Monument may close for climbing due to weather conditions and/or other safety considerations.

Pet friendly (call for restrictions/fees.). Picnicking is permitted.
