Longyear Museum, conveniently located just outside Boston and easily accessible by public transportation, offers exhibits, publications, and programs about the life of Mary Baker Eddy, one of America’s most noted women, as well as tours of several houses where she once lived. Mrs. Eddy discovered Christian Science in 1866 and spent over 40 years making her discovery known through healing, writing, and teaching. The Longyear Museum collections - including paper documents, photographs, art, and artifacts, ranging from the smallest tintype photo to the largest house - serve as evidence of Mrs. Eddy’s life and work for current and future generations

The faces in the remarkable photograph of the Point of Pines picnic are a study in contrasts. Taken July 16, 1885, the image depicts members of the Christian Scientist Association — students of Mary Baker Eddy — celebrating its ninth anniversary. Seated side by side are those who would stand resolutely with their teacher – and those who would break away from her and even attack her.
