  Trinity Church and Hancock Building in Copley Sq
by Ewingjr98

Located at Copley Square the old Trinity Church stands alongside the modern Hancock Building. The church was completed in 1887 and has long been known as one of Boston's most significant buildings from an architectural standpoint. Visitors are awestruck by the magnificent stained-glass windows which were created in various styles by some of Europe's best glass workshops.

Did you know Trinity Church was built on a landfill and its foundation is supported by thousands of wood pilings driven through the trash into the solid clay beneath?

Address: 206 Clarendon Street
