Bunker Hill Monument
save place
Don't Shoot 'Til You See the Whites of Their Eyes
A horrid thought, but this is the spot where that famous cry originated in 1775 at the Battle of Bunker Hill. If you dare, climb the 294 stairs of local granite, where you'll be rewarded at the top of the obelisk with a spectacular view of the surrounding area. After your heart has stopped pounding, {and believe me, it will pound} stroll down the hill and be rewarded at one of the local Charlestown watering holes.
