In the summer of 1885, a man named Thomas Martin built Horace Memorial Hall—the unique Chelsea building pictured above—in honor of his deceased son, Horace. For almost a century, the structure housed a Baptist church. The building was later abandoned after congregation numbers dwindled, but this year, new life was breathed into the bones of the place.

Ten lofts were carved out of the church, and this two-bedroom unit for sale is the largest in the building. The bi-level condo offers a cupola, sparkling hardwood floors, a marble and stainless steel kitchen, soaring ceilings, a laundry closet, and ample storage space. Plus, the unit has a deeded parking spot and a small balcony off of the kitchen.
