Behind-the-Scenes Tour of the All Saints, Ashmont, Restoration Project
The Parish of All Saints and Saint Mark’s Area Main Streets (SMAMS) invite you to Dorchester’s historic Peabody Square for a tour of the comprehensive restoration project underway at All Saints, Ashmont.
All Saints is the first church designed by noted architect Ralph Adams Cram and profoundly influenced American church design in the Gothic Revival style. After four years of planning, in 2013 the Parish embarked on an extensive exterior and interior rehabilitation of the building, which will be complete in late 2014.
All Saints parishioner and SMAMS Board member Jeffrey Gonyeau, who is providing fundraising and other preservation support to this major project, will make a presentation and lead a tour of the project’s progress.
The group will meet in the church parking lot at 209 Ashmont St, where there is plenty of parking. The church is also a 2-minute walk from the Ashmont T station. Please note that this is an active construction site and that the tour will involve climbing stairs; make sure to wear sturdy shoes and appropriate casual clothes.
The Parish of All Saints, 209 Ashmont Street, Dorchester, MA 02124
Free and open to the public, but space is limited. RSVP to Jeffrey Gonyeau at firstname.lastname@example.org or to Meaghan Overton at email@example.com.
