Statement of Significance (as of designation - December 30, 1970):
Designed by the Boston architectural firm of Cummings and Sears and constructed from 1874-1875, Old South Church is modeled after the style of a north Italian Gothic church. It is one of the finest examples of High Victorian Gothic ecclesiastical architecture in New England.

Though the exterior has been restored, extensive deferred infrastructure work is needed.

Recommendation/Change since last report:
Funding to undertake this work is needed.
