All Saints' Church — Ashmont, officially The Parish of All Saints — Ashmont, is a church of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts located at 209 Ashmont Street in the Dorchester neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts.
The parish began in 1867 as a mission of nearby St. Mary's Church. The cornerstone for current structure was laid in November 1892, and the congregation held its first services in the new ediface December 27, 1893. Construction was financed largely through the generosity of Colonel Oliver Peabody, one of the founders of Kidder, Peabody & Co.
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."
The church located in southern Dorchester, a short walk from the Ashmont station of the MBTA Red Line. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. In 2013, All Saints was protected by a preservation easement held by Historic New England.
