Old South Church

Not to be confused with the Old South Church in Salem that the last church we saw was a replica of…

Now the First Presbyterian Meeting House, it was built in 1756 and redone in 1856. Benedict Arnold (previously the Most Famous Benedict I Knew) worshiped here on September 17, 1775 with his Quebec Expedition. George Whitefield, apparently a “great revivalist,” preached here.
