In the late 19th century, Boston was divided into three main sections: the “old downtown,” the newly created and elegant Back Bay, and the transient neighborhoods of the South End. This chapter provides a tour of these three areas, paying attention to the relative age and physical location of churches, as they competed for space in a geographically cramped environment. Overlapping Boston’s religious history with its urban geography demonstrates the essential stability of Congregational, Baptist, and Methodist religions in Boston, and the difficulty that their priority of place posed to denominational newcomers.

Keywords:   Back Bay, South End, congregational, Baptist, Methodist, urban geography
