Old South Church, Boston

I hardly ever see pictures of this church except from the finish line angle during Marathon Monday. I suppose when you have to compete with the Hancock Building, Trinity Church, and the Boston Public Library all within spitting distance, you occasionally get ignored. Fun facts, the congregation, not the building, was assembled in 1669 and had such honorable congregants as Ben Franklin, Mary Chilton, and William Dawes (Paul Revere’s lesser-known night-riding presumably hell-raising homie).  The building pictured above was finished in 1875 and, as churches go, looks pretty sweet. You can read all about it here and here.
