Old South Church reviews
If you're in the area to see Trinity Church, you should take quick walk to see this church too. There is not an entrance fee, and it has great architecture too. I enjoyed it just as much as Trinity. more »
This another old (relatively speaking) church in Boston. It is. Best observed from outside with it’s high tower. Entrance is free, but there is not too much to see. more »
Attended the Boston Marathon Blessing service with a friend from NC who ran for rhe first time in the marathon. The experience was overwhelming!
If you like to photograph old churches this place has beautiful architecture.
