Page 45. " 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.
