In 1838, under Timothy Gilbert, a group of men who longed for a church with free seats began meeting to pray and discuss the exclusive nature of most churches. The Baptist Free Church, organized in 1839 with 82 charter members, conducted its first public worship in Tremont Hall, at31 Tremont St, in December 1838. Membership grew rapidly as they moved to Congress Hall at the corner of Milk and Congress, and then to Tremont Chapel on the corner of Bromfield and Tremont.

Mr. Gilbert purchased the Tremont Theatre in 1843, determined to "transform the theatre into a temple of God." Called Tremont Street Baptist Church and later Union Temple Baptist Church, the name Tremont Temple Baptist Church was adopted in 1891.

In 1850, the Baptist Free Church passed a resolution that all slaves be respected, cared for, and protected – in adamant defiance of the Fugitive Slave Law in effect at the time.

The church endured three devastating fires: 1852, 1879 and 1893. The fourth and present building was dedicated in 1896. The present building originally had stores on the ground floor and commercial offices on the upper floors. Revenue from business rents and rental of the auditorium for concerts enabled the church to continue to provide free seats to all worshipers.

Trinity Church

Trinity Church is a parish of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts. The congregation was originally founded in 1733. The current Church building was erected after its former site burned in the Great Boston Fire of 1872, under the direction of Rector Phillips Brooks.

The building was designed by Henry Hobson Richardson and designed and built from 1872 to 1877, when it was consecrated. Trinity Church is the building that established Richardson’s reputation and the birthplace of the "Richardson Romanesque" style, characterized by a clay roof, polychromy, rough stone, heavy arches, and a massive tower. This style was soon adopted for a number of public buildings across the United States, and is the first American architectural style imitated in Europe and Canada. It is the only church in the United States, and the only building in Boston, that has been honored as one of the 10 most significant buildings in the United States by the American Institute of Architects (AIA). In 1885 it was voted the most important building in America by architects, and over a century later the AIA still lists the Church among the top 10 American buildings, making it the only building to remain on the original list.

The building’s plan is a modified Greek Cross with four arms extending outwards from the central tower, which stands 211 ft tall. Situated in Copley Square next to the John Hancock Tower in Back Bay, which was originally a mud flat, Trinity rests on some 4500 wooden piles, each driven through 30 feet of gravel fill, silt, and clay, and constantly wetted by a pump so they do not rot if exposed to air.

Its interior murals, which cover over 21,500 square feet were completed entirely by American artists. Richardson and Brooks decided that a richly colored interior was essential and turned to an at the time unknown John La Farge. The Church’s windows were originally clear glass at consecration but later adorned. Four windows were designed by Edward Burne-Jones and executed by William Morris. Another four windows were done by La Farge, who used a revolutionary style of layering opalescent glass.

In 2007, Trinity Church was ranked #25 on the AIA 150 America’s Favorite Architecture list.
