First Baptist Church

The First Baptist Church sign is seen all over the
world but this is the First – First Baptist Church –
founded by Roger Williams in 1638 – he quit a few
years later because his religious beliefs had undergone
some changes – that is why he insisted that tolerance in
religious concernments was so essential to individuals.
Over the years many church steeples were blown over
in hurricanes but never this one – it was built by the
shipbuilders of Boston who were out of work when the
British blockaded the harbor – they always had the power
of storms in mind so this steeple has withstood every
hurricane and blizzard since 1774.
