You are able to take your time walking around this chapel, and there are a couple of unlocked box pews which you can sit in. A nice cool respite on an unusually hot autum day.

This old historic church is right on the Freedom Trail. It has a burial ground adjacent. Make a small donation to help with upkeep.

Wonderfully maintained revolutionary chapel, with historic information abounding throughout the chapel. Worth the time to sit in the upholstered pews and look around.

Very interesting to see how pews are organized into walled areas. Donation is requested instead of a formal entry fee.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
