Among the Churches

Current Notes

Lynn, Mass. —An important real estate transfer took place yesterday [Jan. 2] when the Massachusetts Home Missionary Society of Boston made over to First Church of Christ, Scientist, of Lynn, the land, 68 by 106 feet, buildings, and contents of the church property now occupied by the Scientists on Chestnut Street near Broad. The church is an old landmark of Lynn and was formerly known as the Chestnut Street Congregational Church.

For the past five years the property has been leased by the Lynn Scientists. The lease would expire in March, and in order to be sure of a church home, it was thought advisable to purchase the property outright. Just what disposition will be made of it ultimately is not now certain. The Christian Scientists of Lynn still have hopes of erecting an edifice some day, but for the time, at least, they will abide at their present location.—Lynn Item.
