The local Christian Science church has purchased the First Congregational church purchased corner Valentine Street and North Ninth Avenue, and will hold its first service there Sunday evening [April 28]. Mechanics are now making alterations and improvements, to be completed in time for that date. This step of obtaining a central location has been contemplated for some time and culminated in this purchase, which gives local Christian Scientists a desirable corner lot for the erection of a permanent church and in the mean time a temporary building that will accommodate the growing congregation for a short time.—Mt. Vernon Argus.

The announcement is made of an important sale of real estate. First Church of Christ, Scientist, of this city, which now holds its services in Republican Hall, has recently purchased of the Windham County Savings Bank of Danielson, Conn., through local real estate firms, the lot at the corner of Winthrop and Derby Avenues, upon which a church edifice will be built. This is considered a very desirable location, because this part of the city is fast becoming a fine residential section, large numbers of beautiful homes having been built during the last few years. This lot overlooks Monitor Park, upon which stands the Ericson monument with its bronze eagle poised for flight. Prominent real estate men pronounce it one of the best sites in New Haven for a church.
