Founded in 1817, this is the oldest Seminary of the Episcopal Church. An oasis in a hurried city, men and women from around the world come here to seek solace and study for the ministry. The site features a series of buildings surrounding a gorgeous garden that is a delight to visit during spring and summer. It is also the home of the St. Marks Library, the largest Episcopal seminary library in the United States. When the clock strikes, the seminary's set of 15 Durfee tubular tower chimes are heard throughout Chelsea. Services are held daily in the chapel and open to the public.
