Another interesting short stop on the Freedom Trail. Make sure you go inside - it doesn't take long but it is worthwhile.

This is a church that is still in use. The tour was very good. I love history and the stories and information was great. You could also just walk in and read the informational posters.

This is a very historical site to visit. Great for families and couples. It closes at 4 so be wise about the time. It takes around 30 minutes to tour the entire church.

It was quiet even though there were a lot of people. Very interesting history and gave me something to think about.

I hadn't planned on visiting, but we popped in and were totally amazed. I had read about the old churches where families had 'boxes' but didn't know any still existed. It was beautiful.

Free walk through of the beautiful church! Ask politely and don’t be rambunctious and you can even sit in the boxes pews! Definitely take time to read through all of the historical information that they have displayed in the pews. I particularly enjoyed the one...More
