Park Street Church is a stop on the Freedom Trail
, down the hill from the State House
. Built in 1810, the basement served as a gunpowder storage depot during the War of 1812. Abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison gave his first anti-slavery speech here, and the Granary Burying Ground
, where many famous early Bostonians are buried, is just steps away. The Federalist brick-and-wood building features a steeple and granite steps. The church houses an active parish.
