Built in 1804, the First Church of Roxbury Meetinghouse is the oldest surviving wooden religious structure in Boston. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as part of the John Eliot Square Historic District and is a pending Boston Landmark. Its three-building campus is now home to the Unitarian Universalist Urban Ministry, which provides important social service, educational, and community programming at the site. The exterior of the Meetinghouse was recently restored, and work is underway to renovate its elegant interior and position it as an active site of arts, educational, and civic programming for Roxbury.
