Albuquerque, New Mexico (First Church).
First Church of Christ, Scientist, at 324 South Broadway, was dedicated on Sunday, August 5, 1945. In addition to the regular service a brief history of the church was read. It follows in part:
"The earliest Christian Science services in Albuquerque began in 1905, when a small group met regularly in private homes to read the Lesson-Sermon from the Quarterly. Attendance gradually increased, and thereafter the meetings were held in various locations, among them the Knights of Pythias and Odd Fellows Halls, the Woman's Club, and the former public library.
"In June, 1907, a society was organized, and became a branch of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston. The society was incorporated in February, 1913, and in December, 1924, became First Church of Christ, Scientist, Albuquerque.
"The building at 111 South Seventh was purchased in 1925, and used until outgrown. In 1930 the present edifice was acquired. The church has maintained a Sunday school since its early years. A Reading Room was maintained on the premises until 1924, when it was moved to the business district."
