King's Chapel

View of King's Chapel on the corner of School and Tremont Street. King's Chapel was first established in 1686 by the King of England to serve the Tories, loyalists to the crown. After closing its doors during the Revolution, in 1785 the congregation broke its ties with the Episcopal Church and became the first unitarian church in the United States. Read more of the church's history.

View a close up of the church's iron fence I showed a few days ago.

I really admire the composition of this. You've really caught such an interesting collection of architecture in your frame. And the palette has such an elegance to it.

Such a modest church. And the first Unitarian, too! If I ever get back to Boston I know that I want to visit this. Thank you!
