Longyear Museum members, community leaders, local press, and residents from throughout the greater Boston area attended a unique Open House in Lynn, Massachusetts, on October 15. There they celebrated the completion of the first phase of the restoration of the Mary Baker Eddy Historic House located at 8 Broad Street. Special guests included State Senator Thomas McGee; Dan Cahill, Councilor-At-Large on the Lynn City Council; and Lynn Mayoral Aide Gardy Jean Francois.
It was while living in this house that Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, completed her book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. Following her years in Lynn she went on to become one of the most famous women in America. She is still considered one of the most influential women in the field of religion, and is the only woman to found a worldwide religion.
