Items of Interest

When the former Publishing House was remodeled to form the present Administration Building of The Mother Church, provision was made to have near the entrance at 107 Falmouth Street a visitors' reception and waiting room, and a retiring room for women; also a room where garments or bundles might be checked. The room opened on June 10, 1934, and has continued so daily, except Sundays. On Saturdays it is open from 9.00 a.m. until 12 m., and on other weekdays from 8.30 a.m. until 4.40 p.m. During this period of nearly six months from sixty to seventy people a day on an average have been aided; while others have used the room for reading, resting, and other purposes.

An attendant in the waiting room is glad to be helpful to visitors, to answer questions, to aid those who wish to obtain cards admitting them to Mrs. Eddy's home at Chestnut Hill, and to assist those who desire to arrange for travel to various places of interest in connection with Christian Science, as well as to historic spots near Boston. Visitors who have only a short time at their disposal have had help in arranging their schedules and have expressed gratitude for it. Information about trains and long-distance bus services has been forthcoming, information about visiting hours and directions for reaching historic places, and people have been located whom visitors wished to find in Boston. Also, the names of those who can be employed to drive automobiles or act as guides have been furnished.
