The Boston National Historic Park was designated a national park on October 1, 1974 to showcase Boston’s role in the American Revolution. It includes eight sites connected by the Freedom Trail: the Bunker Hill Monument, Dorchester Heights, Faneuil Hall, Old North Church, Old South Meeting House, Old State House, Paul Revere House, and the Charlestown Navy Yard. The Charlestown Navy Yard was one of the oldest shipbuilding facilities in the United States Navy and was established in 1801. After its closure in 1974, it was turned over to the National Park Service.
