Bunker Hill Monument and Museum
Standing 221 feet above the ground, the Bunker Hill Monument is a majestic reminder of an inspiring battle during America's fight for independence. Although it was actually a colonial loss, the Battle of Bunker Hill played a central role in boosting military morale, thanks to significant losses suffered by the British. Between 1827 and 1843, the towering granite obelisk was erected to honor the courage and sacrifice of the inexperienced militiamen who fought in the battle. Today, this monument is one of the top Boston historic sites based on its significance and architectural beauty. Enjoy the climb up to the Bunker Hill Monument and Museum and enjoy unparalleled views of the city. The historic 1901 Bunker Hill Lodge houses portraits, the statue of Joseph Warren, and a Revolutionary War cannon, "The Adams."
