The handsome new edifice of the Christian Science Society, occupying a prominent location on High street, opposite Union, was declared completed, with the exception of the basement furnishings, and will be opened for public worship tomorrow [Jan. 28]. Although much smaller than the other modern church buildings of the borough, and of entirely different pattern and construction, the new edifice being patterned after the Greek style of architecture, it is stately in appearance and may well be regarded as a fitting addition to Winsted's already imposing array of churches. There will be no formal dedicatory exercises at this time, but beginning tomorrow the structure will be regularly used by the society.

The building is located at the corner of High street and Fairview avenue, in the center of what was known as the Lincoln property, a lot eighty by one hundred and twenty feet, and is plainly seen from Main street through Union. It is of terra cotta and stucco construction, forty-two by sixty-five feet, outside dimensions, and two stories high. The auditorium is forty-two feet square and has a seating capacity, exclusive of the gallery, of about two hundred and fifty. The basement contains the Sunday school room, twenty-six by forty-two feet.—Winsted Citizen.
