St. John's Harvest Fair

St. John's Episcopal Church, at 27 Devens Street, invites the Charlestown community to its annual Harvest Fair, an enjoyable community event and an important fundraiser for the church.

St John's was founded in 1840 at the beginning of Charlestown's early population boom. At the time there were other Christian denominations in Charlestown but St. John's became the town's only Episcopal congregation. Today it is the oldest church in the town.

A walk up Devens Street today reveals the venerable old church in the early Gothic Revival style, designed by Boston architect Richard Bond (1797-1861). The church is notable for its dark ashlar granite facade, quatrefoil windows and square crenellated tower. The adjacent 1870’s Carpenter Gothic stick-style chapel, designed by Ware and Van Brunt was lifted to allow the addition of a brick ground floor, thereby creating the current Parish House in 1901. Its stands today in all it’s faded glory as the finest Victorian building in the neighborhood

This year the fair takes place Saturday, November 13.

St. John’s is accessible by the Orange Line at Community College Station or by the 92 Main Street bus.
