It is definitely worth the 45 minute stop to check out King's Chapel when in downtown Boston or on the Freedom Trail. Self guided tour with lots of interesting facts around the history of Boston.

Part of the Freedom Walk - the interior shows much history and reminds me of other chapels with "family boxes" in the sanctuary.
