BOSTON (CBS) – You’ve probably driven in Boston’s Back Bay and not given much notice to the church at the corner of Newbury and Berkley streets.

But that church has been given a very special recognition.

The Church Of The Covenant is being added to the registry of National Historic Landmarks.

The church stands out with 42 windows designed by Tiffany Glass & Decorating Co. and a large chandelier lamp.

There are 82,000 sites in the registry but only 2,500 National Historic Landmarks in the country.
