SPEECHLESS SUNDAY - St. Peter's Episcopal Church | Salem MA

St Peter's Episcopal Church Salem MA

St. Peter's Episcopal Church, Salem Massachusetts

St. Peter's Episcopal Church was the first Episcopal congregation in New England, founded in 1733 after permission was granted for religious groups other than Congregationalists to have worship services. Phillip English donated the land for St. Peter's Church. The original 1733 building was taken down to build the present stone one in 1833. True to early 1800s custom, the church has 'pew boxes' with doors that close. Our niece was married in this historic building a couple of weeks ago and we really enjoyed the history and beauty of this Church. One other note: the steps are not built anywhere close to today's code They are very high, both at the entrance and in the rear on the way to the Parish Hall - always the Realtor side kicks in :)

Pretty.  It looks very different than most Florida churches I believe.  I think our oldest church in Worthington may be older than this one...  but then again maybe I am thinking of when it was founded (1803) not when the church was built. 

Are you on Pinterest?  I have a church board.  May I pin this?

Hi Maureen, I wish they had some photos of the original building. Definitely you can pin it on Pinterest! Yes, I'm on there but haven't been active. Pin with my pleasure!

Fascinating history, Sharon!  I remember reading The Scarlet Letter, about the witch trials, when I was in high school, so Salem Massachussets is of interest to me.  I would love to visit there one day!

Sharon and Frank,

I love it.  The red door sure stands out.  Would love to know the story behind that! Thanks for sharing!
