King's Chapel, Boston's first Anglican church dates back to 1688, and has the oldest American pulpit still in use today. The bell that rings every Sunday calling worshipers to the still active church was recast by Paul Revere who claimed it was the sweetest bell he ever made. Make sure to leave time on this stop of the Freedom Trail to take the Bell and Bones Tour. Down, down into the 200 year old crypt vault. Check your clausterphobia at the door and you'll also see the 2,437 pound bell.
