Description

A view of the front façade of Church of the New Jerusalem at 3 Regent Street at Joseph Warren Square, at the corner of St. James Street in Roxbury, Massachusetts, built in 1874. A bell tower rises from the entranceway, behind which a turret stands on the St. James Street side of the church. On the façade, an arched window contains three quatrefoil round windows. This Swedenborgian church was established in 1870 and was later called the Roxbury Society of the New Jerusalem. The congregation disbanded in 1957, and the church was sold in 1958 and later occupied by the Church of God in Christ.
