Old West Church

Flag as Inappropriate

<p>Founded in 1737, the Old West Church sits on the corner of Cambridge and Staniford streets, set back on a leafy, peaceful lot of land. The current federal-style church was built in 1806.</p>
<p>The church was active for 150 years, even counting Louisa May Alcott among its famous Sunday school pupils. But when the congregation disbanded it escaped demolition and was converted into the West End Library in 1894. The library is now right next door.</p> <p>Since 1962, it has been a United Methodist Church. Services are held every Sunday at 11 a.m., with prayer beginning at 10 a.m. A community prayer is held every Wednesday at noon.</p> <p>Old West Church also has an impressive organ and the director of music is the former head of the organ department at the New England Conservatory of Music.</p>
