Trinity Church

Nominated for: BEST Landmark

Trinity Church 233 Clarendon St Boston MA (617) 536-0944

Trinity Church has been a vital part of Boston's skyline since its dedication in 1877. The parish, which was incorporated in 1733, was originally located in downtown Boston. In 1872, under the leadership of Rector Phillips Brooks, the parish decided to construct a new building and make the move to Boston's Back Bay neighborhood. A young architect by the name of Henry Hobson Richardson conceived a bold new design to house this thriving parish and its nationally recognized preacher. Completed in 1877, Richardson's masterpiece helped to define Copley Square as a cultural center for the city, and it was quickly honored as a landmark in American design.

The contrast between the Trinity Church and the Hancock Tower is my favorite site in Boston.
