In its pre-church "life," it was a Granary (like, as in a place to put grain). It bordered the "Granary Burial Ground" which is still there today, as a piece of our American history, as well as the final resting place (more or less, who...More
On the Freedom Trail you will pass by the Park Street Church. It is free to enter but I think they accept donations as you would expect. It is a simple design but worth going inside. Some of the pews are interesting as they appear...More
The Park Street Church is locates at the east junction of the Boston Common. It was the tallest building in the United States from 1810 to 1828. For much of the early 19th century, it was the first landmark travelers saw when approaching Boston.
Located on Boston's Freedom Trail, across from Boston Common is perched this beautiful traditional New England church built in 1809 by architect Peter Banner. Inspired by a church in London designed by famed architect Christopher Wren, its 217 foot steeple at one time was the...More
Park Street Church played an important part of early American History with many notable happenings and meetings. We were there on a Sunday morning and could tour between services, since it is still an active church.
My daughter got married in this historic church. Location across from Boston Common, on historic trail, in the heart of old Boston. Staff were incredibly helpful, sanctuary is simply beautiful, and everything was classically elegant. Second floor location for sanctuary is iconic. A very holy...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
