Description

Our church was founded in 1746 by George Whitefield and moved into its current building ten years later when the land was purchased and the congregation erected the beams in that early July. Throughout its 250+ years, Old South has played a part in the history of the Great Awakening, the town of Newburyport and America itself. Learn about the Forgotten Founding Father of America and the role that Old South played in that movement he was instrumental in furthering and in the subsequent American Revolution.

Special Instructions: The tour is approximately an hour long
