In 1843, the Theater became the Temple when the Free Baptist Society bought it. It was the first integrated church in Boston, the first to provide free seats, and it was called the "Pulpit of America" by Dwight L. Moody, the famous evangelist. The Temple burned three times. The present building was constructed in 1896.
