Among the Churches

A transaction of much interest to Christian Scientists and religious circles in general has just been consummated in the purchase of the estate at No. 12 Broad Street, by the local Christian Science organization, for the purpose of erecting a church edifice in which the new faith may be inculcated.

The house standing on the property, is the one wherein Mrs. Mary Baker had her residence in Lynn back in the sixties, when she was preparing her famous work on Science and Health, and laying the foundation of the Christian Science faith which has had such a wonderful growth in this country.

A peculiar interest attaches to this house because of this fact. Mrs. Eddy, in the introduction to her book, says: "The first school of Christian Science mind-healing was begun by the author in Lynn, Mass., about 1867, with only one student." To-day there are over four hundred Christian Science organizations with church property representing millions of dollars, and all this had a beginning in the unpretentious old family house on Board Street.
