Boston - Old North Church - crypt

Part of our behind-the-scenes tour of the Old North Church took us into the crypt that is in the basement of the church.  They are not sure just how many people are buried in the basement of the church - could be hundreds, could be a thousand.

Each vault could hold about 30 coffins.  Here are some of the headstones for those crypts.
Notice how some have the guidelines marked on them for the carver.
