Among the Churches

Hartford, Conn. —The members of Second Church of Christ, Scientist, Monday night [March 10] voted unanimously to purchase the former home of ex-Governor Henry Roberts as a site for a new church. The property has a frontage of 157 feet on Lafayette Street, 210 feet on Russ Street, and faces the little park known as Lafayette Triangle at the junction of Lafayette and Washington Streets.

Second Church of Christ, Scientist, was organized approximately ten years ago and began holding services in rooms of the Connecticut General Life Building. After three years of progress the church moved into the hall recently occupied by the food administration on Lewis Street. For the past four years it has occupied the old Park Congregational Church at the corner of Asylum and High Streets. The immediate necessity for change from this location arises from the rapid growth of the Sunday school, for which the present accommodations are inadequate. Plans for the new church will be started at once and contracts for the actual construction will probably be let early this fall.—Hartford Times.
