Park Street Church

Do you know why this is the church of "firsts”?

From its inauguration back in 1809, this evangelical church has been the privileged site of many of the city’s key historic events. It is sometimes referred to as the church of "firsts” for its pioneering role in social, national and theological progress throughout its extensive history. For example, William Lloyd Garrison, a famous abolitionist, gave his first speech against slavery from the pulpit of the Park Street Church on 4 July 1829. Amongst other historic landmarks, Park Street Church saw the birth of the organist Lowell Mason, considered by many as the father of tradition protestant church music in the USA. You’ll find it on the corner of Tremont and Park Street. Discover more at www.parkstreet.org.
