From May 1 through October 31, Longyear Museum welcomes visitors to the eight Mary Baker Eddy Historic Houses in its collection. These houses trace Mrs. Eddy’s footsteps as Discoverer, Founder, and Leader of Christian Science. The public is warmly invited to visit these sites in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

The houses offer a glimpse of everyday life during the 19th and 20th centuries, and illuminate the history of one of the most noted women in America. As they stand in the very rooms where she lived and worked, visitors learn about Mrs. Eddy’s remarkable life history.
Each house in the Longyear collection is interpreted to mark the different stages of Mrs. Eddy's life, from the struggles of her earlier years in New Hampshire, to the years of accomplishment represented by her home in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts.
Longyear looks forward to again welcoming school field trips, campers and counselors from summer camps, and individuals and families from throughout New England, the United States, and around the globe.
