"It stood nearly beneath the eaves of Boston’s earliest church"

Boston’s first church was founded in 1630 by the original wave of Puritan settlers. From 1632, its members congregated in the meeting house near present-day State Street, a modest building with wattle-and-daub-covered stone walls and a thatched roof. It has been demolished, reconstructed and moved many times over the centuries and now stands on 66 Marlborough Street, a good deal grander than in its original form.
