Former homes of Mary Baker Eddy

1908-1910 Chestnut Hill home—400 Beacon Street, Newton, Massachusetts. Here Mrs. Eddy completed work on the Manual of The Mother Church and brought to fruition the publishing of the daily newspaper The Christian Science Monitor. An exhibit traces Mrs. Eddy's role as Founder and Leader of the Christian Science movement—preaching, teaching, writing, and commenting on issues still current.

1875-1882 Lynn home—12 Broad Street, Lynn, Massachusetts. Here Mrs. Eddy completed her manuscript for Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. This is also where she initiated many foundational steps in establishing the Christian Science movement, including the formation of the Christian Science Association, the Church of Christ, Scientist, and the Massachusetts Metaphysical College. Here also Mrs. Eddy was ordained as Pastor of her Church.
