This historic church, built in 1749 and part of the Freedom Trail, has the distinction of being the first Anglican congregation in the American colonies. Then, in 1785, it became the first Unitarian church in the country. There is still an active congregation that uses the Anglican Book of Common Prayer. The interior is considered a paragon of Georgian architectural design. The 18th-century bell from England tolls even today. The church also has an historic cemetery. Although the church doesn't charge an admission fee, offerings will be appreciated.
La Old North Church es una iglesia episcopal activa hasta la fecha, y posiblemente sea el edificio religioso más antiguo de Boston, que data de 1723. Ocupa un lugar especial en la historia de los Estados Unidos, ya que en una noche fatídica de 1775, Paul Revere vio la señal, "Uno por tierra, dos por mar", y después de que el sacristán colgó dos faroles en la torre, comenzó su famoso paseo de la medianoche para despertar y advertir al campo de la llegada de las tropas británicas. Cada mes de abril, los miembros de la milicia colonial comenzar un servicio linterna para conmemorar este acontecimiento histórico.
As you sit in Copley Square, in the Back Bay area of Boston, you can't help noticing the incredible detail on the facade of this Episcopal church. Finished in 1877, Trinity Church's Romanesque structure designed by Henry H. Richardson is considered one of the finest examples of church architecture in the nation. This style, characterized by heavy arches, rough stone, a large tower and clay roof, later became known as Richardsonian Romanesque and was soon spread throughout the United States.
Looking a tad out of place among busy expressways, apartment buildings and the adjacent "Foodies Urban Market", Cathedral of the Holy Cross still draws in parishioners. The largest cathedral in New England, Holy Cross has been a community meeting place since 1875 when ecclesiastical architect Partick Keely's design was finished and the rite of dedication read. In that time, Holy Cross has absorbed a number of nearby congregations with three different Catholic denominations worshiping at the site, and continues to act as the mother church of the Boston Diocese. Stunning architecture and points of historical interest relating to Boston's Catholic past round out travelers' experience at Cathedral of the Holy Cross.
