Late 1800’s on Tremont Street in Boston Massachusetts with a view of the Park Street Church.

The Freedom Trail is a 2.5-mile-long (4.0 km) path through downtown Boston, Massachusetts that passes by 16 locations significant to the history of the United States. Marked largely with brick, it winds between Boston Common to the USS Constitution in Charlestown. Stops along the trail include simple explanatory ground markers, graveyards, notable churches and buildings, and a historic naval frigate.

Park Street Church is a historic stop on the Freedom Trail. The founding of the church is predated to 1804 when the “Religious Improvement Society” began weekly meetings with lectures and prayer. The society organized the charter of the church on February 27, 1809 by twenty-six local people, mostly former members of the Old South Meeting House, who wanted to plant a church with orthodox Trinitarian theology.
