The eight historic houses in Longyear Museum’s collection trace Mary Baker Eddy’s footsteps as Discoverer, Founder, and Leader of Christian Science.

Each house marks a stage of Mrs. Eddy’s life, from the struggles of her earlier New Hampshire years to the years of accomplishment represented by her home at Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. Her story is rekindled as you cross each threshold to stand in the very rooms where she lived and worked.

For all our visitors, these landmarks help bring the 19th and early 20th centuries to life and illuminate the history of one of the most noted women of her day in America. Longyear Museum invites you to experience these historic sites for yourself.
