In one sense, every place of worship is of historic importance, since it reflects the culture and aspirations of the congregation that creaked it.  Many of the places we have listed here have special rooms or collections, or have changed their primary function to act as museums or performance spaces.  Please, let us know if we've missed a place of significance that others should know about.
