Park Street Church

Recommendation by Lemi

In the early days of Boston, around 1814, travelers coming in on their ships could see the piercing steeple of Park Street Church. In many ways, the church was a beacon of hope—in their sharing of the Christian faith and also later on as Abolitionists against slavery. William Lloyd Garrison, a prominent American Abolitionist, delivered his first anti-slavery address here in 1829 at the age of 24. It was a major point that began Garrison’s lifelong mission to emancipate slaves, as he moved on to write fervently on the issue. He was almost 60 when he saw the end to slavery in 1865. To date, Park Street is still keeping at serving the community. They’ve helped launch a school, they conduct outreaches and weekly worship services. Anyone is welcome to attend their 8:00AM, 11:00AM, and 4:00PM Sunday service. Just observe church decorum and dress accordingly (avoid shorts, revealing tops, or open shoes). Tourists from the Freedom Trail are accommodated Tuesday to Saturday, 9:30AM to 3:00PM.
