Bunker Hill Monument Tours

The Bunker Hill Memorial is a granite monument built in memory of the Battle of Bunker Hill, the first real battle of the American Revolutionary War.

The Battle of Bunker Hill took place in June 1775 in Charlestown, Massachusetts, when American Revolutionary forces met the British Army during one of the earliest battles of the war. The British ultimately won that battle – although, of course, they would go on to lose the war.

The battle itself took place on nearby Breed's Hill, but Bunker Hill was the main objective of both armies – so that's where the Bunker Hill Monument was built. The first monument was built in 1794, made of wood, and stood 18 feet tall. From 1827-1842, the current granite memorial was built. The obelisk resembles the Washington Monument in Washington D.C., towering over the surrounding landscape.

Practical Info

The Bunker Hill Memorial is located in nearby Charlestown, roughly two miles from Boston. You can climb to the top inside the 221-foot-tall tower via 294 steps. The site is open daily from 9am-4:30pm, closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day. Admission is free.
