Beginning in 1877, The Old South Association in Boston preserved the 1729 Old South Meeting House as a busy museum, treasured landmark, and an active center for civic dialogue and free expression.

The Old South Association in Boston merged with the Bostonian Society in January of 2020 to form Revolutionary Spaces.

The Old South Association in Boston is a private nonprofit 501(c) 3 organization, and as such receives no ongoing federal, state, or local funding in support of its mission to preserve this iconic building and keep it in active use. We depend on the support of our visitors, members, donors, volunteers and sponsors. Thank you for your support!

Old South Meeting House is:

  • An official site in Boston National Historical Park, a National Park;
  • An official site on Boston's Freedom Trail, a red brick line connecting Boston's revolutionary sites;
  • A National Historic Landmark;
  • and A Massachusetts Cultural Council UP organization, dedicated to Universal Participation.
