Members go inside restoration of historic church

Nov 28, 2015

Historic New England’s Historic Homeowner members gathered on November 21 for a special pop-up tour of the recent extensive restoration and conservation work at the Parish of All Saints church in Boston’s Dorchester neighborhood. This important landmark is protected in Historic New England’s Preservation Easement Program.

Parish of All Saints, designed by Ralph Adams Cram, was constructed between 1892 and 1929. It is considered to be Cram’s first major architectural commission. Recognized by architectural and ecclesiastical communities for its innovative and inspirational design, All Saints established Cram’s reputation as a major architect and influenced the design of Anglican churches in the United States for the next fifty years.

Over the subsequent years, Cram’s career as an architect has received wide praise. All Saints has increasingly been recognized as one of the country’s most significant religious buildings.
