Shawmut Congregational Church

Started researching the Shawmut Congregational Church, which used to be on the corner of Shawmut and West Brookline Street, and discovered that a family that were members of the church lived in the brownstone my condo is in (and the family in the brownstone next to mine also worshipped there). The gentleman who lived in my house was likely a teacher at the Franklin School (which appears on 1928 maps as being in the South End) who wrote a pamphlet that’s at the Massachusetts Historical Society.

The church pretty much dissolved in 1892, after the “good” members of the church moved out of the South End to Back Bay or the suburbs. Amazing what you can find on the internet.
