King's Chapel was one of my favorite churches that we saw along the Freedom Trail. I loved the architecture and the unique seating arrangement. A interesting place to visit.

The present church dates from 1749, but the history goes back into the preceding century when King James II ordered an Anglican church built in Boston, much to the disgust of the Puritan population. The current building is rather squat and unassuming on the outside (see my photo), but worth a look inside.
Neat old church. I don't have much to add. The organ was playing when we visited. The music was a little dark. Interesting how each paid for a seat. Surprised churches don't keep that tradition.
