“221 foot (67 m) granite obelisk”
The Bunker Hill Monument was built to commemorate the Battle of Bunker Hill. The 221 foot (67 m) granite obelisk was erected between 1827 and 1843 in Charlestown, Massachusetts with granite from Quincy, Massachusetts, conveyed to the site via the Granite Railway, built specially for that purpose, followed by a trip by barge. There are 294 steps to the top.
247 steps up to a outstanding vantage point...crowded...ppl...looked like they where going to die...typical americans...walk what is that..
if you are fat, old, lazy don't bother...
Fantastic view from the top of the monument - if you can face climbing the nearly 300 steps! Bunker Hill is the start of the Boston Freedom Trail which is a 2 mile ramble through the historic sights following the red brick trail. Bunker Hill has a great view of Boston.
Very cool stop along the freedom trail. The view at the top of the obelisk is amazing but very crowded. worth checking out.
Best stop with historical value! Bunker monument is amazing! Museum is Free and interesting- check out 3rd floor battle scene movie. Get ranger book for the kids. Museum has a/c and water to cool down.
Cool view of Boston, and interesting that the obelisk is so old! The museum across the street is small, but informative!
