Church · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
King's Chapel is an independent Christian unitarian congregation affiliated with the Unitarian Universalist Association that is "unitarian Christian in theology, Anglican in worship, and congregational in governance." It is housed in what was for a time after the Revolution called the "Stone Chapel", an 18th-century structure at the corner of Tremont Street and School Street in Boston, Massachusetts. The chapel building, completed in 1754, is one of the finest designs of the noted colonial architect Peter Harrison, and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1960 for its architectural significance.

Despite its name, the adjacent King's Chapel Burying Ground is not affiliated with the chapel or any other church; it pre-dates the present church by over a century.

  • This is an old chapel from colonial time when there was a king in place. The bell has been recast by Paul Revere and Sons. A lot of history here for history lovers.  more »
  • Well maintained period details that give a real feel for colonial Boston. Informative guide, and on the Bells and Bones tour you can actually climb into the belfry and touch a bell cast by Paul Revere and Sons.
  • One of the oldest chapels in Boston and the 5th stop on the Freedom Trail. Here, you’ll find the graves of John Winthrop, the founder of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, and William Dawes Jr., a founder of the Sons of Liberty and tagged along during Paul Revere’s ride. It’s a beautiful place and still serves as a church today.
