What a stunning church. No fee just donations to go in. I loved how the seats are in little cubicles. Apparently back in the day a family tithing to the church would get their own box to sit in. Don’t forget to go outside and...More

We visited as part of the Freedom Trail Walk. Finding out about the history of such early churches, and seeing the pews. The visit was enhanced by the number of display boards, telling the history of pew owners and the church itself. Allow enough time...More

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.
