Though popularly known as the Battle of Bunker Hill, most of the fighting of June 17, 1775, took place on Breed's Hill, where the monument stands today. You can climb 294 steps to the top of the 67 m (221 ft) granite obelisk to discover far-reaching views of the city. An adjacent lodge with exhibits explains more about the historic battle and houses a statue of Dr. Joseph Warren, a major-general who died during the battle's final assault.

  • What a great place to visit with out-of-town guests. Parking can be hard to locate, but once you walk up the monument, the view is great! It is a challenge to climb the stairs, but it’s so great that you are allowed into the monument! The view is priceless!
  • I'm an English man ex forces but I can respect the reverence this place gives off. A superb monument to remember what occurred there. A credit to your country and immaculately maintained
