The Bunker Hill Monument is a monument erected at the site of the Battle of Bunker Hill in Boston , Massachusetts , which was among the first major battles between the Red Coats and Patriots in the American Revolutionary War . The 221-foot (67 m) granite obelisk was erected between 1825 and 1843 in Charlestown, Massachusetts , with granite from nearby Quincy conveyed to the site via the purpose-built Granite Railway , followed by a trip by barge. There are 294 steps to the top. An exhibit lodge built near the base of the monument in the late 19th century houses a statue of fallen hero Dr. Joseph Warren . Bunker Hill is one of the sites along the Freedom Trail and is part of Boston National Historical Park . The monument underwent a $3.7 million renovation, completed in 2007, that included repairs, handicap accessibility improvements, and new lighting. The Bunker Hill Museum across the street was dedicated in June of that year and includes many exhibits about the battle. No admission charge applies to the museum or monument.
