The National Park Service has closed the Bunker Hill Monument in the Charlestown neighborhood northeast of downtown Boston until further notice because of icy conditions.
The monument, a 221-foot granite obelisk atop Breed’s Hill, marks the site of The Battle of Bunker Hill, the first battle between the Patriots and the British during the American Revolutionary War. When the monument is open, you can visit the museum, the Bunker Hill Lodge, and climb the 294 stairs to the top of the monument.
