All Saints' Church, Ashmont

All Saints' Church, Ashmont, officially The Parish of All Saints – Ashmont, began in 1867 as a mission of St. Mary's Church. The building was built in 1892, largely through the generosity of Colonel Oliver Peabody, one of the founders of Kidder, Peabody & Co.. It is a parish of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts.

Douglass Shand Tucci said of the church: "Architect Ralph Adams Cram's first church, designed in partnership with Bertram Goodhue, was All Saints', Ashmont. A significant landmark in American architectural history, All Saints' is, of its type, Cram and Goodhue's masterpiece, and a model for American parish church architecture for the first half of the 20th century."

It is in the southern part of Dorchester, a neighborhood of Boston, a short walk from the Ashmont T station on the Red Line.

The church was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.
