1x Greeting Card of “King’s Chapel, Boston MA”
Card Style: 4″ × 6″ Greeting Card

Feb 12, 2011

King’s Chapel was founded by Royal Governor Sir Edmund Andros in 1686 as the first Anglican Church in New England during the reign of King James II. The original King’s Chapel was a wooden church built in 1688 at the corner of Tremont and School Streets, where the church stands today. It was situated on the public burying ground because no resident would sell land for a non-Puritan church.

In 1749, construction began on the current stone structure, which was designed by Peter Harrison and completed in 1754. The stone church was built around the wooden church. When the stone church was complete, the wooden church was disassembled and removed through the windows of the new church. The wood was then shipped to Lunenburg, Nova Scotia where it was used to construct St. John’s Anglican Church. That church was destroyed by fire on Halloween night, 2001. It has since been rebuilt.

    I’ve seen this from the ground. This is a fun perspective! Odd how the building in the very back-far left looks tilted. Not sure why.

  • I was away in school last week, this one just took during short break from the kitchen window of the school office. Was not sure if I should post it at first, was not sure about perspectives, but in the end I decided to give it a try. Thank you Joe
