Park Street Church Steeple Restoration

Park Street Church, located at the corner of Tremont and Park Streets on the Freedom Trail, is known for its long history as a center of social justice reform, formerly known as “Brimstone Corner,” as well as its place as an architectural gem in Downtown Boston.

 

Designed by architect Peter Banner and completed in 1810, the steeple of Park Street Church was the tallest building in Boston at the time, and an important part of Boston’s skyline for over 200 years. The steeple is currently undergoing a major restoration and preservation project to return its decorative elements to a sound and historically faithful condition. This important project will also include the repainting and relighting of the steeple.

 

Park Street Church is now open Tuesdays to Saturdays 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. through August 19 and is open year round on Sundays. For more information about the historic steeple restoration, activities, programs, and services please visit the Park Street Church’s website
